Why openoffice selected as default?
I shocked to see the openoffice selection of backslash developers. Most of the distributions are choosing Libreoffice and its actively developed. But openoffice development is going in the speed of a snail . Any particular reason for opting openoffice over Libreoffice?
There’s no particular reason for this. This has been implemented to gain response for OpenOffice from the community. LibreOffice may be back on April 11, 2018 (What’s special about April 11?). Till now you can uninstall OpenOffice and continue to use LibreOffice.
