Catching up with OpenOffice.org - the open-source giant

For anyone who is interested in how open-source works, or in business productivity applications, there is a very insightful article over on NewsForge about OpenOffice.org after 4 years. Bruce Byfield is IMHO one of the top journalists in open-source and Louis Suarez-Potts is a worthy interviewee who knows his subject inside and out.

Comments:

To quote from the start of The Lord of the Rigns: �It was a compliment . . . and so, of course, not true.� But thanks for the good opinion, all the same!

Hi Bruce, I don't compliment that often, so if I do it's deserved - what I've seen of your work is excellent.
There are many good open-source journalists, but unfortunately some of them are just looking to manufacture some cheap controversy to bolster their self-given roles as guardians of open-source. Rather than slag them off, I'd rather highlight the good work of commentators like yourself. More please!
