My guess: Oracle sells OpenOffice to IBM.
This could actually happen... Of course, IBM has devoted lots of resources to Lotus Symphony; perhaps Symphony and OOo could combine forces to take on Microsoft Office...
Hmm... or maybe MicroSoft would be willing to pay more?
This is a near-impossibility. Hell would freeze over sooner. I just can't see MS buying a competitive product to their cash-cow office suite. If they did so it'd be to simply extinguish OOo (bypassing the extend and embrace phases). OOo would fork faster than a Windows box blue-screening.
