I translated it with Google translate to english:

Very interesting!  Thanks.

From the translation --
Quote
AbiWord and Gnumeric are great programs, but lack the heavy features in OOo / LO.
A lot of us don't need those "heavy features" most of the time.

I guess a ordinary user can use simpler things. But I suppose he talk about professional users. And compare to Microsoft Office, OpenOffice. I know he is a expert at OpenOffice but recently changed to LibreOffice.

(Google translate is fine but sometimes it not translate all things correctly)

The Google translation is essentially useless.  They should stick to stealing user data and data-mining. To do the author justice, an adequate English translation should be provided.

The website of TDF is fairly straightforward.http://www.documentfoundation.org/

I note that one of the author's main objections seems to be groundless as of this date, as TDF offers downloads for Windows Mac PPC and Intel and Linux in 86_32 or_64 in RPM and Deb, but no generic tarball. 85% of the downloads are going to non-Linux OSs.

Here is another blog/article about OpenOffice/LibreOffice:

If look at the comments many like IBM Lotus Symphony. I know you can get it for Ubuntu:

But I am not sure if you can get it to other Linux distributions?
