Only time will tell whether or not Apache Open Office will thrive. The one thing Open Office has going for it is brand recognition by the average user. It's much easier to just give them Open Office than to explain that LibreOffice is a derivative and the reason it forked.

Submission + - The FSF Adapts the Kickstarter Approach to Fund-raising 3 3

ChronoEngineer writes: Recently the Free Software foundation launched a new fund-raising system starting with the GNU Mediagoblin project. Rewards from its new tiered donation reward system include physical objects such as a 3d print of the project's mascot as well as digital ones (Rewards List). This gives free software projects an alternative crowd-funding source where all of their contributions go to advancing free software since the administrative cut taken from the earnings goes to the Free Software Foundation. Chris Webber, of GNU Mediagoblin, mentions this as one of the reasons he chose the FSF over Kickstarter for his project.

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
