"In dumping AbiWord in favor of OpenOffice, is the GNOME
world listening too hard to the sound of money?"
"The GNOME Foundation, clearly salivating over OpenOffice and
Sun's embracing of its desktop, appears to be abandoning some of
GNOME's longtime friends. In its description of the GNOME
Foundation, Sun says the group has already decided that it is
"adopting OpenOffice [...] as the core of the
office productivity software for GNOME Office."
"Hello? Has the Foundation forgotten that GNOME Office already
had some pretty darn good core components? Let's have a look a
second quote from another corner of this world:
"Our goal is to become the World's Word
"That piece of modesty comes not from anyone involved in
OpenOffice, but rather from Martin Sevior, one of the core
developers of the open source AbiWord project. AbiWord was the word
processor component of GNOME Office... until Sun showed up."
