Well, basically most of OO devs moved to LO. LO sanitized the code by
translating German comments and variables so everybody can collaborate.
They started to liberate new versions at a constant path. They moved to
the ODF, that from my point of view is great advantage over being fucked
over by Oracle (read this like losing traction from the community) and
being spilled over Apache Fundation to see if they could bring it back
Dont take me wrong, I love OO, thats why I like to choose LO where the
OO body (code) and spirit (community) has been moved to.
Only time will tell what project survives, I just hope its sooner than
later, and i hope its LO. These are not 2 different projects that give
us choice. Its the same but better (for the reasons I just mentioned)
