Merge Open Office and Libre Office and you kill the competitive pressures

and Microsoft's Office obsolete.

Anyone arguing for a merger is your greatest enemy, or a damned fool.
Competition drives innovation. If you merge with Open Office you'll be
handling Microsoft an easy victory.

The view is that OpenOffice is currently manned by Oracle employees, which
might also be out of work soon. And any community members have moved already
to the Document Foundation and LibreOffice.

We are just chatting here in this thread with the limited information
that is publicly
What we should agree on is that we want what's best for LibreOffice.
