itworld.com: It looks as if some folks got a little bit carried away with the news yesterday that the next version of Ubuntu, 11.04, will feature LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice.org. Because, actually, that's not exactly what's happening.
standardsandfreedom.net: These past days I was contacted by several leads of native-language teams of OpenOffice.org who asked me this question: How can we start to work on the localization of LibreOffice?
oracle.com (PR): today introduced Oracle Cloud Office and Open Office 3.3, two complete, open standards-based office productivity suites for the desktop, web and mobile devices – helping users significantly improve productivity, reduce costs and achieve greater innovation across the enterprise.
standardsandfreedom.net: Forgive the title above; but these past days we started to receive more and more questions about the OpenOffice.org Renaissance Project and whether we would continue its works and implement its changes.
standardsandfreedom.net: Today the Document Foundation has issued a press release that marks the beginning of something exciting; but it’s likely that not a lot of people will understand what’s being explained through the multiple layers of buzz and general statements that were made.

pcmag.com: Those looking for some alternatives to the pricey Microsoft Office have looked to Google for its small suite of online apps and OpenOffice, an open-source Office suite "owned" by Oracle and comprised of clones of the Microsoft product. This is about to get more complicated.
itworld.com: This accomplishes two things: those who leave can be replaced by more Oracle-friendly developers. Those who stay will have re-committed themselves to the success of OpenOffice.org, just by staying. Ah, but there's another benefit here left unsaid:
linuxmigrante.blogspot: Yesterday, I finished the analysis of a survey I passed for one of my courses. I used tables, pie graphs, bar graphs, and many of those features people love to see when data analysis is presented. Oh...I also used Open Office to build the whole thing.
standardsandfreedom.net: Today is a special day. I feel both sad and relieved, happy and somewhat disgusted. I have officially resigned from my all my duties, roles and positions inside the OpenOffice.org project.
