You're optimistic about that? I doubt a simple change of affiliation will change the various habits of the developers affected, nor do I imagine that the balance of opinion within the entire LibreOffice community would suddenly change even if, for some reason, those developers affected had a surprising change of heart.

Where I do agree with you, is that the smaller, nimble, agile and product-focussed company is likely to make smarter decisions than the various "enterprise" behemoths with money to spend. The amount of waste that could be avoided is notable indeed.

There is nothing that focuses the mind so much as the economics of a small company trying to meet payroll. This can even overcome bad habits. So, yes, I am optimistic.

Are you really so convinced that LibreOffice developers are incapable of change?

I think he may be more convinced that this isn't much of a change for "LibreOffice developers" in the broad sense (although it obviously is for a small portion of them). Remember: LibreOffice isn't a single company's pet project like it was in the Sun days.

Could you please take your AOO advocacy elsewhere?

Collabory is a profitable company. The LibreOffice business is profitable. Your assertions that there somehow is some fear/uncertainty is FUD.

Full disclosure: rcweir is a known AOO advocate who always complains about LibreOffice, mostly using weird logic and false statements.

This part is true.

This part is false. I have never seen a real falsehood from Rob when it comes to figures or facts. I have seen some speculation on the motivation of people's actions but that is just as rampant on the other side.

There's telling lies, and there's telling the truth with the intention to deceive.

Personally, I just wish Rob and the AOO crew would follow the LibreOffice example and just IGNORE the opposition, rather than picking fights.

If I wanted to know about AOO I would follow it. I don't want AOO guys filling the LO forums with AOO rubbish.

Cheers,
Wol
