On NewsForge on Friday, Ryan Singer countered speculation that Sun's recent no-sue agreement with Microsoft might have adverse effects on the continued development of OpenOffice.org:



"Since Sun Microsystems' 10k filings, I have been asked many times by press and pundits to clarify what this agreement means for OpenOffice.org. There is much misunderstanding and confusion among the Free Software and Open Source communities as to how this affects OpenOffice.org. I have, with the help of community volunteers Daniel Carrera and Colin Chalres, developed this FAQ as an aid to the FS/OSS community, to better understand the situation. I hope that this will ease the fears of the FS/OSS community."
