Another difference is that the platform is open for both open source and closed source projects.

Origo targets not only open-source developers, but users are free to also host projects that do not want their source code to be published. Usage of the platform is free. The ususal components like configruration management, bug-tracking, forums, wiki et cetera are available as well as plug-ins for IDEs like Eclipse, VisualStudio and an API allowing interaction and extension of Origo."
ButcherCH writes: ETH Zurich launches a sourceforge alternative that not only provides free hosting of open source projects but free hosting for closed source projects as well. It is called Origo and in addition to more common features like subversion repository, wiki pages, issue tracker and release system is also accessible through an API and already provides plugins for some common IDEs like Eclipse, Visual Studio and EiffelStudio.
It's also interesting to note, that the platform itself is open source and build on a p2p based backend.

As opposed to Google code it has fewer restrictions on the siz of the releases and supports metalink
It also has some neat features like wiki pages, a subversion repository, an issue tracker, a simple interface and various API integrations (Eclipse, Visual Studio and EiffelStudio).
It's hosted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.
Origo is an opensource software development platform - use it to host your open- and your closed-source projects! For free of course!
Origo is the one-stop platform for your project needs. Not only can you use it together with your friends to write code and manage issues, but you also get a wiki page to document your project and for interacting with users and to distribute releases. So what are you waiting for?

Wiki pages with WikiMedia Syntax (public and private pages)
Subversion repository with UI
Blog, forum, comments, screenshots
Simple user management
Release management and mirroring
XML-RPC API for integrating the platform into other applications
Plug-Ins for Eclipse, Visual Studio and EiffelStudio, allowing interaction with the plattform directly from within the IDE
