About running Apache OpenOffice or LibreOffice on Android devices: Wouldn't
it, in theory at least, be possible to run both of them if you first
install Ubuntu on your Android device? I know, then it's not Android any

MS just announced that it will offer free MS OS for smartphones and tablets with a 9 inch or smaller display non-business device. They decided that since Android is free, MS OS should be free istead of asking the manufactures to pay $5 to $15 each device. They hope this will increase the MS OS mobile device market share. They may also be offering a 1 year of free "cloud" services like Office 365 for these devices.

So if they do start getting more market share on tablets, our developers may need to make sure LO would on tablet versions of Windows 8.1, like their own "tablet" device. I do not know if anyone on these lists bought one of these MS tablets and/or knows if LO would work on them. If it does, then we are prepared for that MS market grabbing "offer".

As for Ubuntu on a tablet - I would like for someone to tell me OFF LIST how to do such a thing and what the system specs low end really is for Ubuntu on a tablet. I have an old 7 inch that could use a new OS.
