A warm welcome to Canonical

Filed under: Community — The Document Foundation @ 17:55

The Document Foundation welcomes the contribution of Canonical‘s development team to LibreOffice. In particular it is great to welcome Bjoern Michaelsen’s recent addition to the full time team on the project from Canonical. Bjoern brings deep expertise on the LibreOffice core, and has spearheaded many improvements in his previous role at Oracle, we are excited to see his positive impact on LibreOffice, as well as in the Debian and Ubuntu versions of the future. It is also wonderful to see Canonical’s fixes for ARM based platforms, and the results of their investment via CodeThink in Unity Integration. It’s great to have you guys on board.

  16. LibreOffice & Canonical make a great combination. Looking forward to this cooperation. I’m sure this combo will be a Juggernaut.

  17. Oh no, let’s hope Canonical won’t demand a cut, some share, or a bribe, or plain payment for their adoption of LibreOffice for every installation on their Ubuntu Linux, erm, sorry, Ubuntu Microsoft device. LibreOffice must be *Libre* and those guys are looking for trouble, lately…
