LXer: Is Oracle Quietly Killing OpenOffice?

Published at LXer:

Iím certain, given the things that have, or in some cases, have not, happened since the completion of the sale of Sun to Oracle, that many would have wished that IBM had purchased the flailing company. Those seeing the commitment of IBM to many open source projects would tend to believe that the progress of the many Sun projects would be better served under the aegis of IBM. As it is, many are wondering what is going to happen to the many Sun projects, with the Java stream being probably the only thing not in some cloud of possible excision from living efforts.

There exist forks of openoffice, so I don't think it would matter if openoffice was killed, in fact it might be a good thing.
