Today The Document Foundation announced that Intel, a leading semiconductor chip maker, is becoming a member of TDF Advisory Board, "a body that provides advice and funding for the LibreOffice project." Also discussed was the inclusion of LibreOffice in the Intel AppUp Center.It all just seems like a match made in Silicon Valley. Dawn Foster, open source community lead at Intel, said, "I have been using LibreOffice from day one for presentations at conferences and for data analysis. Our engineers have worked with the LibreOffice codebase to optimise it for Intel hardware. Adding it to the AppUp Center is an obvious extension."TDF's Florian Effenberge is quoted as saying, "We are thrilled to add Intel to our existing roster of supporters. TDF is first and foremost a vendor neutral project committed to excellence in the office suite space, but we greatly value the support and advice we gain from organisations such as SUSE, Red Hat, Google, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and Software in the Public Interest (SPI)."Other than more kudos for newly incorporated non-profit, the details may not interest Linux users much. The version of LibreOffice included in Intel's AppUp Center is compiled by SUSE for Windows users on Intel devices. But remember, whatever makes LibreOffice stronger benefits us all.

by an anonymous user on Feb. 24, 2012I use Intel products a lot. Intel makes fantastic Chips & SSDs. I feel LO is the best office productivity suite. Intel's support to LO & the TDF will be very useful.
