We are launching the attached press release announcing that LibreOffice, in a specific version
called LibreOffice for Windows from SUSE, is now available in Intel AppUp(TM) Center. Intel is also
becoming a member of TDF Advisory Board, effective immediately.
This is another key announcement for The Document Foundation, which makes February 2012 a month to
remember for the project. During the last two weeks, we have released LibreOffice 3.5, incorporated
the foundation in Berlin and got the support from one of the key players in the PC environment.
The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice for Windows from SUSE is now available in Intel
Intel becomes a Member of TDF Advisory Board
Berlin, February 23rd, 2012 - The Document Foundation (TDF) today announced LibreOffice for Windows
from SUSE is now available in the Intel AppUp(TM) Center, an online repository designed for Intel®
processor-based devices. Intel is also becoming a member of TDF Advisory Board, a body that
provides advice and funding for the LibreOffice project.
LibreOffice for Windows from SUSE is available in Intel AppUp(TM) Center as a special,
five-language version featuring English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. As a validated Intel
AppUp Center app, LibreOffice for Windows from SUSE features a new, smooth, silent installation
flow and improved uninstallation cleanup.
"I have been using LibreOffice from day one for presentations at conferences and for data
analysis," said Dawn Foster, open source community lead, Intel. "Our engineers have worked with the
LibreOffice codebase to optimise it for Intel hardware. Adding it to the AppUp(TM) Center is an
obvious extension, and will provide an exciting feature for all Ultrabook users."
"We welcome Intel to The Document Foundation, and look forward to working with them," said Dr.
Gerald Pfeifer, senior director of product management, SUSE. "It's great to see Intel providing
LibreOffice through an exciting new channel so that more and more users can experience LibreOffice
on Windows, with access to our world class support, that can make organizations more productive
while saving costs."
"We are thrilled to add Intel to our existing roster of supporters", said Florian Effenberger,
volunteer and TDF board member, "TDF is first and foremost a vendor neutral project committed to
excellence in the office suite space, but we greatly value the support and advice we gain from
organisations such as SUSE, Red Hat, Google, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and Software in the
Public Interest (SPI)."
