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."

The fork of Solaris is called Illumos.

http://www.illumos.org/

Which didn't start out as a fork, it actually wanted to work together with Oracle as they killed OpenSolaris.

Then when Oracle gave them and the entire OpenSolaris community the big finger, they went and fully forked the code base.

Hopefully creating a more viable Solaris OS then OpenSolaris in the Sun and Orable days ever was..
