Also, since Apache took over OpenOffice.org
and put it out of
incubation, it seems the development has been progressing rather well
and in a different direction than LibreOffice. While both started from
the same point, they're going to be different office suites with
different feature sets, different UIs, different devs, etc.
Maybe a power user is able to understand the main differences between
LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice but, what about newbie users?
I think it's beneficial to provide Fedora users with the choice
installing either, or even both, provided there's enough interest
among the devs to make it so. From a user point of view, I think the
main manpower for F19 should go into getting it into repos and solving
*all* conflicts. They should be parallel installable and should not
conflict even at runtime with each other. Especially the runtime
conflicts would be really confusing to (some of) our users.
We adopted LibreOffice as the other GNU/Linux distributions and now we
want reintroduce Apache OpenOffice. This corresponds to admit we made
a wrong choice! this way of act is a lack of coherence.
As Ambassador I can't see benefits for Fedora but only problems for
our users. this proposal is only a point of failure.
