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.

I don't know whether the strict control Sun wants to have is so bad.
If you want to make certain you can maintain a certain level of "quality" and you want to make sure you stay on the development road you have planned to enroll you'll have no other choice than to maintain a strict control.

Perhaps I'm a bit too naive about these things but I have seen too much bad code.

Best regards,

John
