Kolab Now: LibreOffice Online office suite now available for all power-users

Via +Simon Phipps: We decided at The Document Foundation not to try to offer a public deployment of LibreOffice Online, as it would be a massive undertaking and we've no way of funding it reliably. So I am delighted to see Kolab Systems AG are now offering LibreOffice Online, maintained by Collabora Office, as part of their Kolab Now offering.

If you're already plummeting headlong into the proprietary grip of Microsoft's offering, this is the alternative you have been waiting for as well.

Congratulations to Georg Greve and Michael Meeks for this important landmark of a cloud-based office suite that respects user freedoms and privacy.
