Ubuntu and Red Hat praise IBM as it joins OpenOffice.org community

Filed under
OOo

BM has announced that it is joining the OpenOffice.org development community, with an initial involvement concerning code contributions it has been developing as part of its Lotus Notes product. The code includes accessibility enhancements, and IBM is expected to make ongoing contributions to the feature richness and code quality of OpenOffice.org. As an aside, IBM has also declared that it will leverage OpenOffice.org technology in its own product line.

Since the project's creation by Sun Microsystems in 2000, nearly 100 million have downloaded the product; and thousands contribute to it. As an international team of volunteer and sponsored contributors, the OpenOffice.org community has created what is widely regarded as the most important open-source project in the world today. The OpenOffice.org community acknowledges generous sponsorship from a number of companies, including Sun Microsystems, the founder and primary contributor.
