SUSE Linux has been one of the key contributors to LibreOffice since its inception in September 2010. LibreOffice got its start as a fork of the OpenOffice open-source collaboration suite that is now an Apache Software Foundation project. Key contributors to LibreOffice from SUSE Linux are now joining Collabora, including SUSE Distinguished Engineer Michael Meeks.
“I’ve moved from SUSE to Collabora Productivity—where I’ll be working on turning the huge market opportunities around LibreOffice into great service for our customers, and improvements across the board to LibreOffice,” Meeks told eWEEK. –
