Oracle and SUN In an interview with derStandard.at, Novell developer Michael Meeks talks mostly about Sun's lack of openness in regards to OpenOffice.org. He goes as far as stating that if Sun dropped out of OOo-development this "wouldn't be an entirely negative thing". He also goes on to talk about promoting Go-oo instead, and emphasizes the importance of breaking down the barriers between GNOME and KDE.

This is essentially a Novell developer taking potshots at Sun while promoting a project he's involved in. Is it a project sponsored by Novell? They seem really coy about disclosing any of their affiliations on the go-oo.org website (notice the lack of any solid info in the About page).

Ironically, go-oo.org would not exist if Sun hadn't opened up Star Office in the first place and it's highly dubious what that project seeks to achieve.
