"Vitorio Furusho - LibreOffice":
Start 2014 with Freedom, Adopt LibreOffice in your life!
Do you call the absolute dependence on developers' powertrips and their
uncontestable decisions 'freedom'? I have bad news for you then.
I do see freedom here, even if I do not quite see the negative things
that you name.  I do not remember anything that I would call a
powertrip.  In every interaction I have had with a developer, the
developer has been polite and helpful.  The fact that decisions are
made by those who know what they are doing strikes me as a *good* thing.


Like Unity?

I used OpenOffice from Version 1.0 until LibreOffice came out, and have been using LibreOffice ever since. I've been impressed with what LibreOffice has accomplished during the short time it has been in existence. I've used Ubuntu since 8.10. I tried Unity when it first came out. Yes, it was pretty rough around the edges. But it has morphed into a desktop I have no desire to leave. 98% of everything I do on the computer is in Ubuntu. 90% of my time at work is on the computer. I will have multiple windows of multiple apps open at one time, and it never flinches. I recently set up a computer with Windows 8 on. It was a nightmare. I have no desire to try other Linux desktops because I work very efficiently in Unity.
