Concerns about Linux future

Per sources (here's one: https://www.theregister.com/2022/09/20/l...acos_fees/ ) What they're actually doing is starting to charge for LibreOffice only when acquired through the macOS App Store. Previously, this was a free download, but it's hard to fault the decision to charge for the binaries specifically through the macOS App Store considering that it has the highest cost of entry of all other app markets. They aren't the only open source for macOS to make this decision, either. I use a few apps on my Macs, and happily pay the $5-10 to support the developers and have the ease of automated updates to the apps.

I'm sorry, but I think your concerns are wildly overblown and not fully educated on the matter(s) of which they focus on.

My concerns overall are actually beyond the scope of my point here. No I don't know the actual details of what Libreoffice may / might do however my retired government status says yes we may be in for some problems. Chances are you are not educated in this area whereas I am and retired from it but what I am saying is that even the smallest indication of change is the prelude for other changes. Those changes are in progress and this can't be denied. Take note of these small changes because there will be many more.
