Document Foundation: The answer to the iGuRu.gr publication


In the morning we mentioned that the The Document Foundation, which develops LibreOffice, has the completely free suite in the Microsoft Store for 2,99 euros.

We also mentioned that the publisher's name is not "The Document Foundation" but a developer called ".net".The Document Foundation

From the morning we found this case somewhat strange, as there was no relevant announcement from TDF. So we mentioned that you should avoid downloading this version from the Store or if you do, at least do not pay for it. LibreOffice is a completely free suite and you can always download it from its official website without spending one euro.

But a little while ago we received an email from him Italo Vignoli of The Document Foundation. The email clarifies:

The Document Foundation has been updated for an unofficial version of LibreOffice in the Microsoft Store. We are investigating it further, but I want to be clear: the release is not an official version developed by The Document Foundation, so the application page is misleading. The only source of the software (which can be downloaded free of charge at no cost to the end user) is the LibreOffice site:
https://www.libreoffice.org.
Also, the money from the Microsoft Store release does not go to The Document Foundation.

You can also see the email in English:

Document Foundation

Beware, therefore, of the crooks who try to win by others. The Store application has nothing to do with the free application of the Document Foundation.
