"One day after the announcement of LibreOffice 3.3, Oracle
released the free version of OpenOffice.org. Perhaps it was due to
the lack of fanfare, but it seems this release was met with a
collective indifference. Smart money would probably bet that the
lack of interest was due to the LibreOffice release, which, in
contrast, was met with enthusiasm all over the Internet.
"No press release, no announcement, hardly any mention at all
marked the release of OpenOffice.org. Only those watching
www.openoffice.org noted the occasion. The OpenOffice.org Website
did change their home and news pages to reflect the new version
bump, but LibreOffice posted a press release on their mailing list,
copied it to their blog, and send out copies to many
journalists/writers working in Open Source."
