Five years of #LibreOffice - I am proud and honoured to be part of this wonderful and amazing community: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/09/28/five-years-of-libreoffice/
LibreOffice was launched as a fork of OpenOffice.org on September 28, 2010, by a tiny group of people representing the community in their capacity of community project leaders. At the time it was a brave - although necessary - decision, because it was rather clear to everyone that OpenOffice.org was not going to survive for a long time under Oracle stewardship.

Another major piece of engineering that I have covered that we did for Fedora Workstation 23 is the GTK3 port of LibreOffice. Those of you who follow Caolán McNamaras blog are probably aware of the details. The motivation for the port wasn't improved look and feel integration, there was easier ...
