Michael Meeks announces that SUSE’s LibreOffice team is moving over to Collabora, which will be providing commercial LibreOffice support going forward. “It seems to me that the ability to say ‘no’ to profitable but peripheral business in order to strategically focus the company is a really important management task. In the final analysis I’m convinced that this is the right business decision for SUSE. It will allow Collabora’s Productivity division to focus exclusively on driving LibreOffice into Windows, Mac and Consulting markets that are peripheral to SUSE. It will also retain the core of the existing skill base for the benefit of SUSE’s customers, and the wider LibreOffice community, of which openSUSE is an important part.” See also the press releases from Collabora and SUSE.
