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.

Site Confusion.

The only thing I don't like is that Novell does seem to go out of it's way to not let people know it's Novell's rebranded version of OpenOffice. It doesn't take much to figure it out, but the site should probably reflect that fact a little more and maybe it will in the future.

It isn't just Novell's... It is a combination of pretty much every Linux distributions efforts. It just happens that Novell has more OpenOffice.org developers than most groups outside of Sun itself.
