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.

So true. Translation from http://go-oo.org/discover :
* Added MS Office format
* Startup time is now 1 sec instead of 1.5 sec. Woot !
* Fixed a bug (see Improved Excel interoperability)
* Added Mono support

I love the part in the developer section where the howtos point to the OO wiki.

:-p
