Re: ElementaryOS meets Productivity Suite
Apparently Google bought and is porting QuickOffice to NaCl, which is
interesting. I don't know if it'll be wrapped up as part of Google Drive or
of they'll leave it as its own thing. Either way, it will run on Linux with
Chromium; I wonder of there are any other efforts for running NaCl code on
Linux without requiring a whole other browser.
But as David was saying, we don't have the manpower for creating our own
office suite at this point in time. It might be something we look into down
the road, but honestly there are some pretty decent well-established
solutions out there already.
It seems that the LibreOffice designers like elementary, so maybe we will
have some increasing design influence there down the road.
