Minor nit:

In economic terms, Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice are not complementary. 

 - Dennis

In computing, an example of complements are hardware and software.  Software vendors want
the hardware to be free (more for us!) and hardware vendors want the software to be free (more
for us!).  Throw in telecommunication carriers, smartphones, and software and it gets really
exciting.

There is some other term needed for independent producers that deliver comparables while cooperating
in areas of mutual interest.  Although monopolistic competition arises (mines better than
yours), it is moderated in the case of open-source efforts.  (Perhaps this is because there
cannot be abuse of, let alone achievement of, monopoly power where feature differentiation
is in the open-source code base.)

You should have. It was funny. Maybe you need a
funny bone transplant?

LO and AOOo are complementary and they are setup so that
code can move in a very Pro-LO direction. I would like
collaboration between these projects to increase not
decrease.
