I guess this makes OpenOffice officially dead, not just de-facto dead. Apache should have announced that from this day forward, no new bugs will be introduced into OpenOffice. All the bugs it has now are all the bugs it will ever have. No features will be eliminated, gratuitously or otherwise. Spreadsheets will produce exactly the same results, documents will print with exactly the same pagination, a file saved today will load in ten years or a hundred. It can be burned into ROM on any device, with no update procedure defined.
Seriously, I know people who were happy when Lucid went bust because that stabilized its compilers. People knew how to work around the known bugs, but never knew what the next release might bring.
