Oracle cans commercial OpenOffice

Oracle 2

castrox writes "Oracle gives up on development of the commercial branch of OpenOffice. The reason appears to be the drain of mindshare from OpenOffice to the newly created, vendor neutral, LibreOffice fork. Control is to be handed over to the community. I guess we'll see the details to this handover in the coming days or weeks."

I ditched OO for Google Docs... (1)

As a result of the fallout, I moved to the cloud. The plan was to wait for the dust to settle, for LibreOffice to get accepted into most of the mainstream distros and for the bugs to be ironed out.

But having used Google Docs exclusively for quite a while now, I honestly don't think I'll be switching back to OO/LO. Google Docs does everything I need. I'd encourage people to take a good look at it and perhaps use it exclusively for a while to see if you're missing anything from the 'real' applications.

Great, now it's stuck with a stupid name.
