LibreOffice at 4: How the OpenOffice Fork is Forging Ahead

In September 2010, the widely used, open-source OpenOffice.org office suite was forked by a new group called The Document Foundation (TDF). The Document Foundation built out a new suite called LibreOffice that aimed to excel beyond what OpenOffice had been providing and build the suite in a truly open and collaborative development process.

Four years later, LibreOffice is still going strong and continues to thrive. In a video interview with eWEEK, Italo Vignoli, one of the founders of The Document Foundation, talks about some of the surprises of the last four years and what lies ahead.
