From our side of things (Linux users, now mostly LibreOffice users), you are quite right. But this article centers on the Apache side of things, and it is over there that this kind of blunt questions should be asked.
For instance, it would have been hard, investigative journalism if our intrepid editor had interviewed someone from the Apache Foundation about it: what do you expect to give your users that LibreOffice doesn't bring to the table? Or, what goals did you have in mind when you accepted the code base in the first place? (Said editor should strive to keep a poker face and avoid the "what were you thinking" intonation.) We know (and have read here on LWN.net) the answers from the LibreOffice side, they are convincing, and furthermore their project is delivering.
