    Diversity is good. The competition is healthy. And it forces you to continue improving. It is due in part to that competition that Microsoft has become what it is and what helps it improve. Unfortunately they do not see it that way and only point to the negative. Now just hope they don't make bad decisions with their relationship with Intel. In the end the losers will be them.

    I see it as a rather interesting nod from intel to LibreOffice! Even so, I add myself to the list of users with "certain suspicions", because there are several (bad) examples of companies from the Dark Side (hahaha) that approached free projects and screwed them up, Oracle says with almost everyone it inherited from the (blessed) Sun.

    On the other hand, LibreOffice has a strong Community: they had a *** to get away from Oracle, make the "fork" and get down to work. And it was not bad at all;). So on that side it gives me peace of mind, and I know that there will be continuity with this important Project, beyond "other people's problems and possible private forks" of LibreOffice jhejee, which will surely be minor.

    Yes. And the strange thing is that suse has a contract with microsoft to make it more compatible with Windows. Will it have something to do with it?

    That is something that benefits the project so that it gains more followers. And much better than finding yourself in stores with LibreOffice Novell Edition and with licensing costs of approximately $ 75 USD.
