Sun 17th Oct 21:55 2010: OOo's put the willies up Microsoft



From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/10/14/microsoft_fears_open_office_org/ - as El Reg say, if Microsoft are attacking it, they are scared of it. Now that Oracle, rather than Sun, are behind OpenOffice.org, I'm sure they have every reason to be scared.

El Reg have a followup article here by Matt Asay, COO of Canonical, describing desktop office suites as "a market that five years from now no one will care about." Five years is a long time, but I doubt that we will have stopped using them.
