It's a pity that these studies aren't publicized as well as stories with negative viewpoints."

Apparently it means something else to the OpenOffice team who has now released their 9th iteration of supposedly release ready code for the OpenOffice office suite. Between this and the new forks, is there any hope for the prominent MS Office alternative?"
