Oracle's Sun Buy: Will OpenOffice Remain Free?
There's lots of analysis already about Oracle's purchase of Sun, mainly looking at how the buy will affect Microsoft (think MySQL and Oracle 11g
), IBM (think DB2
and Big Blue's failed talks with Sun
) and Web browing and Web development (think Java
) . Not mentioned much is OpenOffice. It'd be interesting to see if OO continues to remain free figuratively and literally. All I care about at this point is that I don't have to resort to using Google Docs or Zoho.
