Ok, I have another opinion. Today LO looks very well.

But there are only 2 or 3 companies paying for most of the professionell
developers. That they do so, is fine and I really hope they do so in
future. And 3 companies are better than one.

But we have seen large companies searching for a business model for a
free office suite. SUN, Oracle, Suse (Novell), IBM and others. Did they
found one?

So LO only can hope, that the supporting companies will ever find paying
developers as enough profitable or promising. The TDF is not able to pay
developers for longer periods.

Just my 2 cents.
