Libre In The Web

The word on the street (as Huggie bear probably never said) is that the OpenOffice project, one time darling (ish) of the open source community, is close to death as it’s forked variant Libre Office announces ongoing improvements. Stopping short of emulating Microsoft’s controversial ribbon interface Libre Office has nonetheless announced their intention for an html5 web based version with additional attention paid to android,iPhone and iPad users.

Meanwhile IBM are rumoured to be on the brink of dropping their own OpenOffice variant Lotus Symphony (which is a shame as I quite liked the Symphony interface despite the proprietary nature of the enterprise).

Change my dear and not a moment too soon?
