Oracle and SUN "Today we welcome Oracle's donation of code that has previously been proprietary to the Apache Software Foundation, it is great to see key user features released in a form that can be included into LibreOffice."

" Oracle has no interest at all in an office suite.

No. Not if they aren't making money from it.

Libreoffice and Openoffice both can operate as services providing document conversion. This is a feature of value to Oracle. Now its not worth fighting with the community and ending up poorer quality document conversion in other products Oracle sells.

So yes their is a reason for Oracle to remain interested. The OpenOffice program does allow Oracle to provide customers with better products.
