Summary:
But it does reflect an ugly agreement that is on par with Novell's agreement with Microsoft. Carving out room for Sun's commercial product while leaving OpenOffice (almost wholly developed by Sun) open to patent suits is cynical, however convenient. Again, I don't think we'll ever see a suit from Microsoft on this issue. I just wish Sun wouldn't have capitulated on this point.
