Oracle Gets The Finger

The OpenOffice.org community has disassociated its self from Oracle by creating The Document Foundation. Oracle owns the OpenOffice.org brand so the  newly created foundation has rebranded the product as LibreOffice which will effectively replace OpenOffice.org as the standard office application bundled with most Linux distributions. The greater open source community has responded very positively with Novell, Red Hat and Canonical all expressing their intentions of including LibreOffice in future releases of their respective distributions.


One down, two to go:
OpenOffice.org
Java
MySQL
