We have communicated several times on this already; the press knows
about and has seen the demo, then the POC... right now anything more is
pure vaporware. Remember that TDF only announces and talks about code
that exists and runs (not necessarily on a stable stage though) It's
been our simple, yet unwavering policy on software .

I'm not suggesting others do the opposite (it's not what matters) but
the article on ZDNet talks about someone talking abot what could be done
by IBM (who already has an online office suite, just check IBM docs on
Lotus Greenhouse) as an integration between AOO and whatever web 2.0
technology coming from IBM. Last but not least, it does not mean that
what they are going to / might /may release at an unspecified date in
the future is a bad idea . Not at all. It is just too early for us to
comment or even analyse at this stage.


Surely open source, cloud based office programmes that support odf are
desirable where ever they come from.
