Thank you!

I was so confused as to what this was all about. No offense to anyone.

I really do understand about language barriers. I speak 4 languages
and since a head injure 15 years ago took down the barriers keeping
these languages in check. I have to work hard to keep from starting a
sentence in English and ending it in Gaelic.

However, none of the affects my ability to understand language so all
of this confused me. I didn't know what was being disagreed about.

I agree, it would be illogical to remove koffice or rename familiar apps.
