We just have to be happy he didnt let it die.


Actually, I am a little annoyed that they did not.

LibreOffice has really taken off. The weaker OpenOffice.org is the better. Now LibreOffice is hampered by the OpenOffice.org anchor around it's neck.

I think this "donation" was done out of spite on Oracle's part and to advantage IBM (who use OO.org as the basis for Symphony). It has nothing to do with the community or the users.

IMHO.
