As HP writes: In other news, increasing dependencies on the proprietary JDK in OO.org, which forces the codebase shipped by Red Hat, Debian, and other companies who won't rely on a JDK license from Sun to diverge more and more from the mainline. Not to mention the StarOffice vs. OpenOffice.org delta.
If ever there was a case for needing GNOME Office, that is it. Otherwise most Distributions will be finding themselves dependent upon licenses from Sun. I think Ximian backed the wrong horse with OOo. I just hope I can help the GO team prove it.
Hacking on the Ibex widgets continues. Hopefully tonight the first few widgets will be complete. A few bugs in the core, however, will prevent us from releasing a demo. There's not much I can do about that, though, than wait on and nag the core developers.
