SUSE

SUSE, the entity behind the popular Linux distributions of similar handles, yesterday made an interesting announcement. In a press release, SUSE announced its LibreOffice team would be teaming up with Collabora Productivity to support LibreOffice commercially. Meeks, one of the driving forces behind LibreOffice development and Novell employee, said LibreOffice development is at the perfect place to increase their commercial interests.

In Meeks' blog post he said:

We've got LibreOffice 4.1 released, and a great minor point release in 4.1.1 out, so the release schedule is calming down. I fully expect this to have exactly zero impact on LibreOffice's time based release schedule. So - as you can see, I'm excited about this. I'm convinced that this is the right business decision for SUSE.
