I help out with computer related issues at a multitude of workplaces, homes and in general just places where people need a working computer or a network of computers. This means I have a say in what software can be used. Today I permanently uninstalled OpenOffice.org at one of these places – in favor of LibreOffice.
When uninstalling, your browser opens an “Uninstallation survey” at OpenOffice.org’s website. It asks you for how long and why you’re uninstalling OOo. I marked “Permanently” and answered the following questions:
Why are you removing the OpenOffice.org installation?
Other: Oracle does not support free and open source software
Which Office productivity suites do you intend to use from now on?
Please provide any additional details on your reason for uninstalling OpenOffice.org:
Oracle has permanently damaged the trademark for OpenOffice.org and now I can only trust LibreOffice to remain the free and open source software I wish to use and recommend.
