A Cohesive OpenOffice
Senior developers for OpenOffice are saying that a fork of the software isn't in the works, though bitter battles between the Sun and Novell elements of the development team continue.
Worries over a possible split began when key Novell developers included Sun-rejected features in another OO-like project, Go-OO. Michael Meeks, a developer on the Novell side of the fracas, says that there are no current plans for a fork of the popular office suite.
He went on to say, though, that Sun exercises too much control over OpenOffice, and should form an independent foundation like Mozilla and Apache. His comments hinted at the possibility of a future fork if Sun remains in control. Sun, for their part, has characterized the dispute as baseless criticism from an embittered rival.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
