Let's go without Microsoft.
Comment 2 V Stuart Foote 2018-05-08 12:35:52 UTC
There was some note of needing to do this when Adolfo finished up bug 108894, lets drop the nod to Microsoft in the filter names.
Comment 3 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2018-05-08 16:32:43 UTC

I’ll also take care of LO Online.

Will close this for now, to avoid these annoying “is this fixed?” robo-messages. Let me know if there are more strings I’ve forgotten about.
