I chose: Yes, it is my main tool.

I use LibreOffice everyday especially Writer and Impress for my teaching activities. I also writing ebooks and currently authoring a book in progress. All my students submit their assignments in Open Document Format and do those jobs with LibreOffice. I made an educational poster about LibreOffice just some times ago and I was very glad @libreoffice helped me resharing it.

For weeks, it was not possible to maintain the project. We are going to fix that.
Keep in mind that even if we don't release new versions, our services have costs through our server charges.
This server is used for the respectful translation feature inside #Fedilab and also for scheduling your messages or the push notifications server.

So don't hesitate to help us through our liberapay account. Thank you.

New versions of Windows might change the UI or underlying components, but they don't change the only thing important to know about Windows: it's nonfree software. Choose software that actually respects its users instead.

Thank you to everyone who supported us last week. Your support means the world to us.

We will return the favor by working harder than ever.

A disgusting implication of SEC vs LBRY is that if we had simply walked away in 2018 with more than $5,000,000, there would be no allegation of wrongdoing.

By continuing to improve LBRY rather than walking away, SEC says we broke law.

Perverse incentives! #HelpLBRYSaveCrypto
