Oracle Donates OpenOffice to the Apache Software Foundation

Oracle announced today that it will contribute the OpenOffice.org code to the Apache Software Foundation, where the free office productivity suite will become part of Apache’s incubator program.

The announcement comes after a rocky year for OpenOffice, which was largely abandoned by Oracle and turned over to the community, many of whom in turn forked the project to LibreOffice and created The Document Foundation.
