It looks as if some folks got a little bit carried away with the news yesterday that the next version of Ubuntu, 11.04, will feature LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice.org.

Because, actually, that's not exactly what's happening. Yet.

All the applications of KDE Telepathy work just fine, the only problem are the Plasma applets, those are totally incompatible.
