"The Ubuntu developers met last week in Dallas to make
final design decisions about the popular Linux distribution's
features and decided to use LibreOffice for its office suite.
"This comes as no surprise to Ubuntu watchers. Canonical founder
Mark Shuttleworth told me back when LibreOffice developers were
forking away from Oracle's OpenOffice had told me that, "The Ubuntu
Project will be pleased to ship LibreOffice from The Document
Foundation in future releases of Ubuntu." It wasn't a sure thing
though that Ubuntu 11.04, aka Natty Narwhal, due out on April 28th,
would have LibreOffice. It is now."
