Features, Office LibreOffice is the provisional name of a community-led fork of OpenOffice that is to be developed under the umbrella of a European based non-profit to be named The Document Foundation. This should break OpenOffice free from the shackles of Sun/Oracle, hopefully leading to a faster and more inclusive development cycle.

So, there is only one other big company do OpenOffice-forks/-whatever it is doing...

opensolaris -> illumos
java/openjdk -> icetea -> ?

mysql -> MariaDB http://mariadb.org/

It has not yet shown up in any Linux distribution as the 'normal mysql' or anything like that yet, but maybe it will in the future, it is possible.

On Gentoo, you can install either mysql or mariadb as a dependency for packages that require mysql.
