is there any alternative for Point Linux? Point seems to be a little dormant so what can be considered as the next step? what is a choice for "after-Point" migration? I have moved to Salix mate? what else?

LibreOffice in repos

I'm still using Point old-stable version. think there are some/many users of 2.3.x release. there are two LO versions in repositories - both quite out-dated. I hope the system will be long supported and I imagine that the important parts will be updated on a regular basis. in point repository there ...
