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.

After all, why would a good open source project go through such great lengths to hide their affiliations?


It's hardly great lengths when a simple whois inquiry shows Novell owning the domain. It's not like they created off-shore shell companies to hide it, for crying out loud. But to your point, Why should a good open source project be judged on their affiliations? Because that's your implication.

Six of one, half dozen of the other. It doesn't matter either way.
