Happy Birthday LibreOffice

This week the The Document Foundation celebrated its' 1-year
anniversary. That's 1 year since they forked OpenOffice to go a new
route with LibreOffice.
A year ago, I was skeptical that OpenOffice would survive the
split. As it turns out, Oracle has a lot of fight in them and hey
they never give up easily either.
Oracle's Apache OpenOffice project is alive and time will tell
how well it is progressing. But it is still around. LibreOffice on
the hand has become the default/defacto standard open office suite
for Linux distros.
