You guys are lucky that anybody uses your French-named program. If the

of business. What a dumb thing to bitch about!
I apologize as what I am writing about might seem like a detail to many, but I think it hurts a bit
the project in the end to leave these things as they are.
On this list (a few others as well but esp. On this one) people call LibreOffice "LO". We -sorry to
take on my founder's hat here- never called LibreOffice LO.
Historically the people who did were long time OpenOffice.org users who were a bit skeptical of us at first
and who felt necessary to "format"LibreOffice in a way they thought was easier.
Now you will tell me that it is easier to type LO than it is with LibreOffice. Perhaps. But
everyone here writes MS Office...
Anyway the point I am trying to make is that LO does not mean anything and sends the wrong message. We are not
"low" , we are not "hello", we are libre people. Ans when I say we I lean everyone here.
