Hi, just wanted to mention that - in 2011, Oracle contributed the OpenOffice code and trademarks to The Apache Foundation. Both OpenOffice and LibreOffice are open source, and nearly identical in features and codebase.
I would be interested to hear if Jay (or anyone else) has used the Relativity Data Model for a multilingual website and the Pros and Cons of doing so.
To be honest I haven't used Relativity with Drupal multilingual, however, in general, I think it would work just fine. Regardless of site language, Relativity is wired with simple entity references throughout using a one-to-one or one-to-many strategy from the parent node. As for Pros or Cons... I believe that Relativity offers a number of UI and Views improvements and should be great way to go.
I'd love to hear how your experience turns out.
But here's the Salim Lakhani interview you mentioned.:
