Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The OpenSolaris governing board fell on its collective sword Monday and resigned en masse after Oracle continued to ignore its ultimatum to appoint a liaison guy to work with it on the future of the open source project. The move was anticlimactic to say the least. Oracle last week leaked an internal e-mail into the wild effectively saying OpenSolaris is dead. The news of the mass resignation, coupled with Oracle suing Google claiming Android infringes on its Java patents, had Adobe's director of open source and standards David McAllister casting Oracle as the New Microsoft and saying "the axis of evil has shifted south about 850 miles or so".

Serious question: is KOffice really so bad that it can't be considered a viable alternative to OpenOffice?


Yes.

As for the article: no surprise here. I don't think that anyone in their right mind liked the idea of Oracle buying Sun; I certainly didn't. The "AoE" hasn't shifted one bit; it always included Oracle.
