"derStandard.at: Being fed up with the current situation with Sun, you seem to be pushing harder for your own OpenOffice.org version with Go-oo. Meeks: That's right. I think the reason is just frustration, we want to get a good user experience out there, we want to get our code out, we want it to be included - and if Sun won't include we have to do it ourselves. So we are now providing our own releases for Windows and also generic builds for Linux and encouraging people to use it. We'd love to have a unified release, but at the moment this is just not possible with Sun."
