I can no longer stand to read all the time the "businesses and organizations can save hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars/pounds/euros/yen/etc.". This is just funny. Do you know what happens when Novel, IBM, Sun, Redflag and Conical withdraw even a small number of developers who work on OOo because won't no longer afford to pay other for others? It will take ages to fix bugs, it will take ages to integrate a new feature and so forth. I have never heard that any of the people/companies/organizations who now say "we save so much money with OOo in comparison to another commercial product" ever donated a single penny. Is this do much asked for. Making a donation and giving something back instead of taking all the time?
