Fedora 15 replaces Openoffice.org with Libreoffice from the Document


"The tipping point is an interesting question: you’re the first one to
ask it! Given that the Document Foundation is made of many people with a
diverse background and history with OpenOffice.org, I would say that
there were in fact several different tipping points depending of the
persons. For me, the tipping point was reached when I stopped feeling
that I had any sort of value in the eyes of the new steward. I felt I
was somewhere an expense on a sheet, and given that I was contributing
to that project for free, it made me think really fast about all this. I
think there was hope for some time that Oracle would be a good steward."
