Hi Cor,

There in is the problem, too much choice is not helpful. It's easier to say
we give an institution a choice in the software they want to integrate
rather than provide a recommendation based on applications that works well
together to provide a more robust solution.

Migrations are clearly never easy and a lot of thought and hard work is
required, however some collaboration in the broadly same office space will
help the whole ecosystem because you can then target missing components and
build relationships with other software providers.

Kind regards

Also mail clients often have a calendar and contacts function that are

LibreOffice currently.

One could also look from the other position: LibreOffice technology
allows to integrate with various other solutions. Supporting the
organizations freedom to chose what they want or stay with a current

From this list LibreOffice only has comparable applications to two (Word
and Excel) and that in my opinion makes any migrations problematic if you
need to research a lot of solutions before you can replace this core
functionality in Microsoft Office.

In my experience a serious migration never is a drop-in replacement of
one with another. Thus when doing a proper preparation, taking the
calendar etc. part in consideration too, is only logic, IMO.
