The only thing I don't like is that Novell does seem to go out of it's way to not let people know it's Novell's rebranded version of OpenOffice. It doesn't take much to figure it out, but the site should probably reflect that fact a little more and maybe it will in the future.

It isn't just Novell's... It is a combination of pretty much every Linux distributions efforts. It just happens that Novell has more developers than most groups outside of Sun itself.
