LibreOffice In The Press

From The Document Foundation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

For other languages, see the highlighted options on the language selector at the top of the web-page, just under the main heading. Some languages may be posted on this page until we can get them a page of their own. (Page maintained by Marc Paré, help from other contributors is welcome.)

The Document Foundation started on 28 September 2010. Ben Woods and Swapnil Bhartiya were the first to publish articles about LibreOffice, far in advance of other writers. Ben Woods published in ZDNet while Swapnil Bhartiya got a scoop interview in Muktware a few days later on 24 October. LibreOffice's first official release was on 25 January and continued the version numbering it had used under its previous name for the preceding decade.

Press Clippings to Remember!

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutualisation_interministérielle_pour_une_bureautique_ouverte

The French ministerial coordination group for "Open productivity suites" now recommends to switch away from MS Office and OpenOffice.org to LibreOffice. The Wikipedia page is in French. This is not just PR (they don't write PR), and it's a small, magical sentence at the end of the page.
