I had a bad feeling when Oracle bought Sun back then in regards to MySQL. But considering how they behaved in regards to OpenOffice and their community (, ), I decided to give Oracle the boot and switch from OpenOffice to LibreOffice.
Of course, on my Ubuntu 10.04, there was only OpenOffice 3 in the repositories. So I was quite happy coming across thisexcellent post on how to install LibreOffice. And yes, it went absolutely smooth! 🙂
