Oracle Announces Its Intention to Move OpenOffice.org to a Community-Based Project

REDWOOD SHORES, CA–(Marketwire – April 15, 2011) – Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL) today is announcing its intention to move OpenOffice.org to a purely community-based open source project and to no longer offer a commercial version of Open Office.”Given the breadth of interest in free personal productivity applications and the rapid evolution of personal computing technologies, we believe the OpenOffice.org project would be best managed by an organization focused on serving that broad constituency on a non-commercial basis,” said Edward Screven, Oracle’s Chief Corporate Architect. “We intend to begin working immediately with community members to further the continued success of Open Office. Oracle will continue to strongly support the adoption of open standards-based document formats, such as the Open Document Format (ODF).”Oracle has a long history of investing in the development and support of open source products. We will continue to make large investments in open source technologies that are strategic to our customers including Linux and MySQL. Oracle is focused on Linux and MySQL because both of these products have won broad based adoption among commercial and government customers.

Galera, estou muito FELIZ e agora acredito plenamente que esse projeto decole, até porque o que a Oracle queria com a compra da Sun além de acabar com o MySQL era acabar com tudo que veio junto com a compra da Sun(com algumas resalvas, diga-se JAVA),  pra mim o ponta pé inicial foi descontinuar o Open Solaris, depois vem a questão de o projeto MySQL estar “parado” no tempo… até porque quem seria “doido”de desenvolver uma ferramenta que é umas das principais concorrentes do seu principal produto e ainda com o diferencial de ser GRATUITO,  e por ai vai….. Realmente muda-se a visão sobre o projeto… com certeza a comunidade é o gestor mais indicado para gerir um projeto tão grandioso.

Abraço a todos.:D
