Features, Office "A group of key OpenOffice.org contributors and community members recently decided to fork the project and establish The Document Foundation in order to drive forward community-driven development of the open source office suite. Oracle has responded to the move by asking several members of TDF to step down from their positions as representatives on the OOo community council."

Why do I get the feeling that just about everyone saw it coming. Oracle buys Sun, all the Open Source initiatives start to suffer. Solaris, OpenOffice, Java, it's all going to have to be forked and move forward without Oracle.
