    The <a href="http://www.ubuntu.com">Ubuntu</a> developers met last
    week in Dallas to make final design decisions about the popular
    Linux distribution’s features and decided to use <a
      href="http://www.libreoffice.org">LibreOffice</a> for its office
    suite.
    <p>This comes as no surprise to Ubuntu watchers. <a
        href="http://www.canonical.com">Canonical</a> founder Mark
      Shuttleworth told me back when <a
href="http://practical-tech.com/development/the-openoffice-fork-is-officially-here/">LibreOffice
        developers were forking away from Oracle’s OpenOffice</a> had
      told me that, “<a
href="http://practical-tech.com/development/openoffice-goes-its-own-way/">The
        Ubuntu Project will be pleased to ship LibreOffice</a> from <a
        href="http://www.documentfoundation.org/">The Document
        Foundation</a> 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.<br>
