Features, Office "A group of key OpenOffice.org contributors and community members recently decided to fork the project and establish The Document Foundation in order to drive forward community-driven development of the open source office suite. Oracle has responded to the move by asking several members of TDF to step down from their positions as representatives on the OOo community council."

Solaris isn't even close to being, "meh". It's far and above Linux.

Uh, huh. Solaris was so successful and well above Linux then that's why Sun tried to copy the open source community around Linux with OpenSolaris, and ultimately went bust?

Far and above Linux? Solaris has needed CPR for about ten years now and the evidence has been in how well Sun faired. I love these statements that people come out with that are somehow meant to be taken as fact.

I used both daily in the enterprise and Solaris is far better.

Excellent and good for you, but I'm afraid most enterprises don't agree with you......which is why Solaris has declined dramatically over the past ten years resulting in Sun going bust effectively.

I smell BS when the word enterprise gets mentioned.........
