[SATLUG] Oracle and OpenOffice, etc.

You have to read a couple of the articles to know why all of this is
necessary.  From what I gather, Oracle owns the name "OpenOffice" but since
the code is F/OSS, the developers are "quitting" Oracle.  The developers are
also changing the name and contining to work under the new name.  This
prevents Oracle from having any control over the direction the project
takes.

Did I do good?
