Article is hardly impartial and neutral and should be edited to meet Wikipedia standards.98.207.21.38 (talk) 18:13, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I have reviewed it and can't quite see what your concerns are - can you point out some specific sentences that you think need fixing? - Ahunt (talk) 10:20, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

>"This is in contrast to OpenOffice.org, which requires developers assign copyright to Oracle."

I believe this situation has changed now that the project has been donated to Apache. --Gigitrix (talk) 03:56, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

The last I heard Apache had not decided whether to accept it or not, but this should probably be changed from present to past tense. - Ahunt (talk) 11:39, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

This article is clearly not impartial and neutral. Especially in the "Reaction" section, quoting from opinion pieces full of childish name-calling and flame-throwing. It infers that the division was started by power grabs from Oracle/Sun, when it could just as easily be shown to have been started much earlier by jealous members of the Open Office leadership, specifically the members that split off to form The Document Foundation. These members were demanding that fellow Open Office leaders either quit their jobs at Oracle/Sun, or quit their position in Open Office, on the grounds that it is not possible for them to make impartial decisions about Open Office because their work was funded by a big business. When the Sun employees refused, the jealous group took a copy of Open Office and started their own game, funded by different big businesses. Coder Steve (talk) 02:18, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

As per WP:RS we have to work from published reliable sources. The sources and quotes you removed were all properly sourced to reliable third party refs, which is why your deletion was reverted by another editor. If you have some new refs to cite that can add balance then these would be greatly appreciated. - Ahunt (talk) 13:29, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
