Microsoft gave up on copy-protection software? What universe do you live in? I still get checked for Windows Genuine Advantage anytime I install something from microsoft.com. Windows Games checks your serial numbers of games for pirated licenses, so on. Palladium Lives. :D

I, personally, would like to see a period Batman film, set in the original 30s in a Dark Deco setting reminiscent of the ol' Bruce Timm animated series. I'm getting tired of "modernizations" of classic super heroes; genetically altered spiders, cell phone imaging computers, al qaeda terrorist caves, etc.

Congraturations, you get award: Reading Fail. TFA's title = "Fork history does not favor OpenOffice.org" OPENOFFICE, not LIBREOFFICE. No contradiction. A fork in this context is when someone takes the code from a project and "forks" it on a different development path, like a "fork" in the road. OO.o went one way, Libre went the other. Have a nice day. :)
