Thanks to Oracle, not only is OpenSolaris now dead
along with other open-source projects previously funded by Sun Microsystems now facing hardship, but the OpenOffice.org community has now decided to part ways too. The OpenOffice.org community has decided to launch The Document Foundation as a new, independent organization. The Document Foundation will now be backing "LibreOffice" as the brand rather than OpenOffice.org.
Canonical / Ubuntu, GNOME, and others have already jumped aboard with this effort. The details (though mostly press quotes) can be found in this press release
or on the new web-site now at DocumentFoundation.org
. Goodbye OpenOffice.org!
