The Ubuntu <http://www.ubuntu.com> developers met last week in Dallas to
make final design decisions about the popular Linux distribution's
features and decided to use LibreOffice <http://www.libreoffice.org> for
its office suite.
This comes as no surprise to Ubuntu watchers. Canonical
<http://www.canonical.com> founder Mark Shuttleworth told me back when
LibreOffice developers were forking away from Oracle's OpenOffice
had told me that, "The Ubuntu Project will be pleased to ship
from The Document Foundation <http://www.documentfoundation.org/> in
future releases of Ubuntu." It wasn't a sure thing though that Ubuntu
11.04, aka Natty Narwhal, due out on April 28th, would have LibreOffice.
It is now.
Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
