Charles H. Schulz Leaving OOo Project

Filed under
LibO
OOo

Today is a special day. I feel both sad and relieved, happy and somewhat disgusted. I have officially resigned from my all my duties, roles and positions inside the OpenOffice.org project. My resignation is effective immediately and I am leaving the project. I will now be contributing to the Document Foundation, while of course continuing to work at Ars Aperta and at the OASIS as a member of its Board of Director, eGov Steering Committee and ODF Committees.

These past days have been tense. In a sense it was to be expected, but on the other hand I feel that it was in fact quite surprising and unprofessional. The Oracle employees who are members of the OpenOffice.org project and who expressed themselves these past days have displayed a disturbing lack of understanding of Free and Open Source Software; LibreOffice is, after all, and until proven otherwise, a downstream version of OpenOffice.org, and as such deserves inclusion into the OpenOffice.org community.

I thought he did the Peanuts

I thought he did the Peanuts cartoon.

re: peanuts

lol. I think of him every time I see that name too.

But Charles M. Schulz is the peanuts cartoonist, and he died a while back. I'm a big fan - have been all my life. Coincidently, I'm using a snoopy persona in Firefox right now.
