"Now LibreOffice is building up pace and last week has added
some 7.7 new million new code lines, doing away with some 5.3K,
which were defunct. Now burnished and revamped, it is sleeker,
faster and provides greater value, in comparison to either
OpenOffice or even Microsoft Word.
"Michel Meeks, comments in his blog that the differences in code
between LibreOffice and OpenOffice is now becoming wider. In
future, It will probably become increasingly difficult to port code
between the two products as the differences could well run into
several million code-lines."
