Hi at all!!!!

Yesterday, 28 th September, the volunteer developer community who developed OpenOffice.org have decided separate from this trademark controlled now by Oracle, and found the independent platform Libre Office.

This project is organized under The Document Foundation, which is supported by Google, EMEA, and NeoOffice between others.

The promoters about this change said that their intention is recover the essence with Sun Microsystems began the OpenOffice.org project and ensure all software aspects that have been developed and all around Libre Office will be always free/libre software, something that, under their judge, was missing.

Oracle bought Sun Microsystems early 2010 and at the moment not official react for this new, although, Oracle have a team for continue with the OpenOffice.org project.
