OpenOffice.org - Its Evolution and Future

Track: BOF
Date: Wednesday, July 09
Time: 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Salon D

Sun released the StarOffice code to the open-source community in October 2000. A web site, hosted and managed by CollabNet, and based on the Apache model, was created to house the code and provide a collaborative space for a developer community. Two and half years later, the OpenOffice.org Project is one of the most important OSS projects extant, and the application, OpenOffice.org 1.0, is the most powerful OSS desktop alternative. The speakers present a personal history of the Project's evolution, with analysis of the key elements that have enabled the project to be so successful.
