Ahem, Tom... Those were my words, so I guess it's me who is the idiot 

Also, the article in The Register was written by Gavin Clarke, not Larry

Glad to hear that companies are lining up to support LibreOffice. It is
essential in my opinion. I used to think that Open Source meant amateur

that more than three quarters of Linux comes from developers on the payroll
of corporations.
