Just over one year after the release of OpenOffice 3.0, OpenOffice.org (OOo) project developer Joost Andrae has announced that the free office suite has been downloaded more than one hundred million times since the launch of version 3.0.

Well...

A copy of MS Office 2007 Home and Student edition is marked at ~$150 on the MS website. So that's $15 BILLION. If OOo managed to get even a single dollar per download they would be a very wealthy project. Maybe everyone who can afford it should give them $5. I might go and donate some money to them now...
