  1. Well Michael this is really cool, probably not the first to say that. It’s what we have been waiting for. This will be a great success and game changer.

  2. Well – I’ve just been reading about Open365 – have we really got to contend with two products aiming, as far as a cursory look goes, for the same solution?

    Is this just another set of FOSS confusions to contend with?

    1. Hi David.

      We’re excited about every use of LibreOffice. Our approach differs – we share core iml. but are less VDI based.

  3. Cool! Is this edition of Collabora Online open source as well? If so, under what license and where can I find the source code?


    1. Hi Daniel. Sorry, no. It does not include LO Base. Currently we include Writer, Calc and Impress.
