Features, Office "We all knew that it would come to this and it has finally happened - 33 developers have left OpenOffice.org to join The Documents Foundation, with more expected to leave in the next few days. After Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems, OpenOffice.org fell into the hands of Oracle, as did a lot of other products. So, last month a few very prominent members of the OpenOffice.org community decided to form The Documents Foundation and fork OpenOffice.org as LibreOffice, possibly fearing that it could go the OpenSolaris way."

Methinks Oracle’s "interest" is money, not open source, otherwise there would be no conflict in the existence of the Document Foundation / LibreOffice.


What, a for-profit corporation interested in money? Holy shit, say it ain't so!?!?
