Update: Worldwide response gave the Document Foundation its needed funding in 8 days! (I’m sure we can all thank the readers of this blog. [grin]) All further donations will provide the foundation support for its actual operations.

What did you pay for the last piece of software you bought?
Was it worth it?

How about if you didn’t have to buy the software, but could get it without cost?
Would that mean it wasn’t of value?

LibreOffice, the fork of OpenOffice is being developed under a model used by other major Free/Libre software groups, a foundation. LibreOffice and the Document Foundation will not be controlled by a single corporation.

The Document Foundation needs to incorporate in order to put LibreOffice on a sound footing.
Since you cannot buy LibreOffice, what about donating something to support the foundation?

Here’s your chance.

Oh, and spread the word. Let’s get this task done.
