This exactly is "seeing only one side of the coin" I wrote in my mail. Yes, if you do not
have any OOo history, then Oracle did a good thing. My opinion is that they did good thing
but they have chosen the worst way to do it.

I think that anyone in the community is free to express they own opinions. And their opinions
depend on their knowledge, history and current mood.
