ashbaby, yes Linux Mint includes a few more extra browser in the default repositories as compared to Ubuntu and Debian (still, there are plenty of browsers not included, like qupzilla). All I'm trying to get across here is please show the developers a consideration on what OpenOffice brings that would justify taking time away from the developers' other tasks?
I'm not dismissing the idea, and you don't need to convince me
I'm just saying, if there isn't a large group of Linux Mint users that would switch to OpenOffice for those as of yet unspecified considerations, then how can the developers justify to the Linux Mint community to spend their limited time on this? That's all I'm trying to get across...
The various office suites included by default in the Linux Mint repositories come from Ubuntu or Debian, and neither of those supports OpenOffice unfortunately. But if you want OpenOffice, you can readily install it from the PPA that adoptapet linked to. That what makes PPAs so great
