Any progress with Oracle?

Has there been any progress with Oracle regarding the legal technicalities? It doesn't really matter that much anymore, since we've got LibreOffice, but I'm a little curious.

and I don't play one on TV

I'm no expert in the negotiations... but my personal opinion is that if they are making it so difficult to work with them, and there's an identical, viable, supported alternative available, why should we waste any time worrying about them anyway? YMMV.

I'm already using LibreO, but

I'm already using LibreO, but I'm curious anyway. Oracle has worked hard to infuriate Java developers lately (and the Apache folks had enough and left the JCP), so I wonder if they have the same attitude towards Portableapps.com.

Attitude

I sense they have the "teenager" attitude... they are the center of the world and everything has to conform to them or it just isn't be very important.

no

they are not the center of the world... they bought the world and changed it so much that nobody likes it (or them) so everybody fled to the new world of the libre.

Apparently, communication between the two world's is nonexistant Sad

The only reason that I'm

The only reason that I'm hanging on to OOo is that there are still a few bugs that LO needs to fix (like weird issues with forms in PDF export), but once they've worked that out, I'm dumping OOo entirely.

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
