@shel LibreOffice was originally developed (as OpenOffice) by a multi billion dollar corporation and development is now sponsored by a foundation that pulls in around a million euros a year

They have slightly more resources than the vast majority of open source projects

@vi fair
though installing software w/o running a mysterious command line command from github shouldn't cost billions of dollars

@shel you're faulting volunteers for an installation process that only exists because a company worth over 700 billion dollars hasn't included a proper package management system with their OS.

@vi yeah but the FLOSS advocates shouldn't fault the masses for not understanding what they're supposed to do in that case and going with the software that they don't need a degree in computer science to install

which is what my point is
