IBM joins OpenOffice.org community

IBM 1

Petrushka (815171) writes "In a press release today, with accompanying press FAQ, IBM announces a change in its relationship to the OpenOffice.org development community. The upshot is that they're making a long-term commitment to OOo; no organisation has paid off any other organisation for this; they're devoting about 35 of their developers in China to OOo; and they'll be contributing accessibility code from Lotus Notes to improve current support for assistive technologies. You may recall that an alleged shortage of assistive technologies that work with OOo has been one of the big criticisms levelled against the idea of governments standardising on the OpenDocument format, which is a file format that OOo and several other office suites support."
