Didn't know about the possibility to upset OEM vendors. In French
speaking countries I haven't seen much manufacturers preinstalling
LibreOffice, but the situation may vary like you said in Italy :)

+1 for blog post. At the beginning of the school year, I had to write
one because I was struggling with peoples always asking for the same
question but for ChromeOS, so I wrote one [1]. Since the Windows 7
deprecation notice [2] and people having bought computer in Windows 10 S
mode, I begin to have questions about the ability to get Windows auto
updates, I have forwarded most of them to use LibreOffice by CIB for
this. Now, I regret because some issues are being reported to me (cf.
other mail in this thread). Really looking forwards for TDC :)
