microsoft may not be that bad, because microsoft is more like cloud company and uses multiple platforms. windows os is not primary product for ms anymore.

i don't think libreoffice is only open source project to charge something from users. i don't remember which, but some project had free version and premium version for additional support and/or cloud services. however, apple takes 30% cut from those app purchases, so are buyers of libreoffice supporting apple or libreoffice project.

edit: typos: fuchsia

I am beginning to think that one of the worst of the corporate backers may well be Manjaro.  Many of us have found it almost impossible to replace the Manjaro Linux which came with our Pinebook Pros, and been shocked by the virtual silence and total lack of concern and hard advice from Pine64.com to our questions/complaints/rants/tears.  NO HELP AT ALL!  I think I've discovered why.  Go to this URL and look at it carefully.  Make your own decisions as to how free of influence the Pine64 crowd is -- I will not try to interfere with your evaluation or opinion.  Here's the URL:  https://manjaro.org/
