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.

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

This would be TERRIBLE. Presumably FOSS projects mean a common/shared source base, and less "NIH syndrome". And Novell seem to be investing quite a bit in OO.org, to be fair.
