Submission + - 33 Developers Leave OpenOffice.org (digitizor.com)

dkd903 writes: We all knew that it would come to this and it has finally happened — 33 developers have left OpenOffice.org to join The Documents Foundation, with more expected to leave in the next few days.

After Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems, OpenOffice.org fell into the hands of Oracle, as did a lot of other products. So, last month a few very prominent members of the OpenOffice.org community decided to form The Documents Foundation and fork OpenOffice.org as LibreOffice, possibly fearing that it could go the OpenSolaris way.
