A Short History of OpenOffice.org

Jump to: navigation, search



The OpenOffice.org project began when Sun Microsystems released the source code (“blueprints") for its StarOffice® software to the open source community in 2000. This allowed Sun to use the technical expertise and rapid development times of an open-source project in the development of its own software products. All recent versions of Sun's StarOffice use source code developed by the OpenOffice.org community. However, the products do not provide exactly the same features due to the copyrights of third parties that are not compatible with open-source licensing.
