Submission + - Oracle to start charging for SUN ODF plugin (sun.com)

muckracer writes: The formerly free Microsoft Office OpenDocument Plugin, developed by SUN Microsystems, now carries a price tag of $90 per user "to obtain a Right to Use (RTU) license", after Oracle took over the company. Whether the plugin, which enables Microsoft Office programs to read and write the ISO-standardized ODF document format, will continue being developed at all remains to be seen. Oracle is currently "reviewing the Sun product roadmap" which they state no longer represents "a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality".
