Where did you read that Symphony is based on OOo? I don't think the programs have anything to do with each other apart from using ODF as a file format. I could be wrong, but I think that Lotus Symphony was a commercially unsuccessful offering from Lotus in the late 1990's that never took off. I think IBM (who bought out Lotus) have modified the program to use ODF and are offering it "free" as in "gratis", but I don't think it is "Free" as in FSF/GPL or "Open" like OOo.
