    For some reason I found this comment extremely amusing. "Germany - where your privacy is (pretty much) guaranteed".

    How quickly we forget how Snowden exposed the undercover relationship between the NSA and the Bundesnachrichtendienst, and the German use of PRISM data.

      According to FSF:
      - Free: free as in freedom. Often used by people to refer to "Gratis".
      - Libre: same as Free.
      - Gratis: free as in cost, but not in " freedom".

        Sorry? Wasn't it OpenOffice?

        Actually LibreOffice still has many problems that prevent it from being used by Average Joe, such as Microsoft Office compatibility (it isn't complate) and the fact they use OpenCL for math acceleration in Calc.

          Was going to write the same but did notice he mentioned grandpa.

          StarOffice - Grandpa
          OpenOffice - Father
          LibreOffice - Child

          That said, it still isn't quite right; OpenOffice wasn't really the father of LibreOffice; more an older sibling which was bled dry by the younger due to licensing phenomenon.

          (Don't want to dredge up this old debate but I still find it fantastic that the GPL cannot manage to do any damage to the proprietary world and yet in this case it managed to do some serious damage to a project under another free license. The GPL is so close to becoming a decent weapon but it just isn't quite there yet)

            Lolwut? I was talking about the fact that it's a German COMPANY. Nearly all German companies are better with privacy-related stuff than the Bundesnachrichtendienst. Sure, they may read along, but my point was about what Softmaker does, not what the government does.

              Penso di sì dal momento che entrambi esistono da oltre 30 anni (quasi quasi la stessa età di StarOffice, nonno di Libre )
              Scusate? Non era OpenOffice?

              Forse LibreOffice è abbastanza buono per loro, forse non lo è per qualche motivo Forse è solo buono per Joe nella media, ma non così per qualcosa di speciale o altro.
              In realtà LibreOffice ha ancora molti problemi che ne impediscono l'utilizzo da Average Joe, come la compatibilità con Microsoft Office (non è conforme) e il fatto che usano OpenCL per l'accelerazione matematica in Calc.
              I understand your speech but in my mind it is Office that must make their formats compatible, not LibreOffice, in an intelligent world people would never bind to a proprietary format, regardless of the operating system in use. Free formats should be the rule, not the exception! Unfortunately we live in a crazy world, so the rule is proprietary ... best wishes!

                Hi,

                I am new here (but no new to the systemd/gnu-d/linuxd world) and I am in the process of writing honest manjaro review. If you would like I will be doing more reviews of more distros. Only honest reviews without sugarcoating. Tell me a place and will do more reviews. The first one will be here in a separate topic. Fully honest. So be warned. I told you!
