Oracle pledges support for OpenOffice.org - Computerworld

Just one little inconvenient truth in this context: Oracle Cloud Office is reportedly not based on OpenOffice.org

Oracle sought to dispel any doubts about its commitment to OpenOffice.org on Wednesday, announcing its participation in the ODF Plugfest event in Brussels this week and talking up future development plans for the open source productivity suite.

Programmers and testers at the vendor "will continue developing, improving, and supporting OpenOffice.org as open source, building on the 7.5 million lines of code already contributed to the community," Oracle said in a statement. The company welcomes community contributions to the code base, it adds.
