Is it just me or did we just forget to advertise the TDF 3rd birthday
video on our mailing lists?
Thanks for the wonderful video Italo! And thanks to all of the wonderful
people in the photos with the wonderful smiles, not to mention all of
the volunteers who make the foundation such a wonderful place to contribute.
The Document Foundation: the third anniversary (Feb. 17th)
I think the fact that we all forgot says a lot about LibreOffice and TDF
To me it says that you have all proven that LibreOffice and TDF are here to
stay. It says that the whole project has matured.
People used to question whether you all would still be around or if the
project would split or fall apart or get absorbed and we would have to
point out that many people and organisations involved were previously
involved in OpenOffice and some of them/you for most or even all of OOo's
lifespan. Indeed from our point of view it was OpenOffice that had a
questionable future while LibreOffice was the continuation. However even
despite all that was thrown at it and all it's tumultuous times OpenOffice
survived too and both have grown a lot stronger, perhaps thanks to
co-operative competition between the projects.
Nowadays people don't question whether TDF and LibreOffice "have the
staying power". You have all proven that it does and you have done that so
well that people don't even think about it being a question anymore.
Most children brag about how old they are but as people mature they tend to
pay less attention to all that.
LibreOffice and TDF have clearly grown-up and been proven reliable.
On the other hand it's nice to see that at least some people celebrated!!
Congrats and regards from
Like any child the first few years the birthday seems hugely important
