Subject Re: Apache replacement
Date Sat, 10 Oct 2015 12:17:04 GMT
There is the brand name "OpenOffice" to be bought.
The exact problems with Apache:
1. Lack of releases, should be 3-4 per year as minimum.
2. The tired and boring look and feel of the homepage, blog, facebook,
twitter.
3. Lack of innovation, the sidebar is not an example for innovation.
4. The lost contact with Linux distributions. all distributions ship
LibreOffice as default.
5. The limited documentation and user support in all forms.
6. The wrong emphasis on M$ formats compatibility, the reason OpenOffice
was invented was to rid the world from proprietary formats. If OpenOffice
fully supports these, what reason is there for anyone to use the open file
format?
Regards,
Don
