Michael started by posing a couple of questions and answering them, the first of which was "why not rewrite into C# or HTML5?" He noted with a straight face that going to a web-based approach might not succeed in [Michael Meeks] improving the program's well-known performance problems. He also said that he has yet to go to a conference where he did not get kicked off the network at some point. For now, he just doesn't buy the concept of doing everything on the web.
Of course I wish Michael and LibreOffice all the best. I am quite thrilled with the increased activity in the LibreOffice git repository. Perhaps, when KOffice gets git later this month it will see a similar surge in the, already very nice, activity. A remarkable thing is that there really are a lot of people working on ODF software these days, and there diversity with compatibility is the optimal result.
Here's a small video of WebODF.
