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.

I take you don't know how the linux development works...

A lot of people seem to equate free software with lack of ownership (physical or intellectual), which is not even remotely the case.

If novell feels so strongly about OO they are welcome to start and open their own office suite.

The level of entitlement in certain circles is astounding.
