Oracle asks OpenOffice founding members to leave!

In an unprecedented move, Oracle has asked the founders of the Document Foundation and LibreOffice to leave the OpenOffice.org Community Council.

Oracle fears that a conflict of interest would develop, should the members continue to remain with OpenOffice.org too.

Just a few weeks back, the community of volunteers who develop and promote OpenOffice.org, had launched an independent foundation called “The Document Foundation” and LibreOffice.

LibreOffice has already received support from  Google, Red Hat, Novell, Canonical, Ubuntu etc.
