LXer: LibreOffice - What it means to End Users

Published at LXer:

Yesterday the Open Office community announced they were forking the project. The results of splitting off an FOSS project means many things to many people. Why should the end user care about the forking of Open Office?

Libre (pronounced /ˈliːbrə/) in English is a neologism adopted from the various Romance languages, ultimately descending from the Latin word lībere. It denotes "the state of being free", as in "liberty" or "having freedom".

Although gratis appears in many English dictionaries, including the Oxford English Dictionary, libre does so less commonly, and no other English adjective signifies "liberty" exclusively and as distinct from "at no monetary cost".
Long Live LibreOffice!!!
