If you want to build a distribution with a single default for everything
and nothing else, Fedora is simply not that distribution. That is a lost
cause and fighting against Apache Openoffice is not going to win you
anything. Given what we have, I think addressing the potential confusion
by improving the GUI is the only realistic answer.
So what is the next step? Offering another kernel? Or allowing us to choose
a different package manager or packing format? Oh, wait, using multiple
different depsolvers has already been frowned upon.
Now why did *that* happen? It is Fedora, isn't it?
Go-oo is entirely irrelevant to Fedora.
No, it is not. It is an important part of where LO came from.
I don't see any reason to drag it
in. Since Libreoffice will be installed by default, regular users will
just use it. No need to explain any nuances.
I see. So how will you empower users to make an informed decision to choose
LO over AOO or the other way around?
And it will be the "default" until someone gets the bright idea of creating
an AOO spin, and that idea has already started floating around.
