Congratulations to OpenOffice which hit a milestone 100 million downloads this week since the launch of version 3.0!
The total download number is impressive because it only counts direct Internet downloads from the OpenOffice.org Web site and does not include installations included with various Linux distributions, copies distributed on CDs or other mirror sites.
Project developer Joost Andrae announced on October 28th that the one hundred millionth person had clicked on the "download OpenOffice.org" button since version 3.0 of the software was announced just over a year ago. The total number of downloads comes from both the 59.9+ million downloads of version 3.0 and the 40.2+ million downloads over version 3.1 (via The H).
Congratulations to the OpenOffice team for this milestone, which I am sure they will be celebrating at the annual OpenOffice conference next week in beautiful Oriveto, Italy.
