OpenOffice.org 3.3 Released to Deaf Ears

(Other stories by Susan Linton)

"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."
