Ten years ago today:

"April 30, 2002 - The OpenOffice.org community (www.openoffice.org) today announced the availability of OpenOffice.org 1.0, the opensource, multi-platform, multi-lingual office productivity suite available as a free download at the OpenOffice.org community website. OpenOffice.org 1.0 is the culmination of more than 18 months of collaborative effort by members of the OpenOffice.org community,which is comprised of Sun employees, volunteer developers, marketers,and end users working to create an international office suite that will run on all major platforms."

It was a radical idea back then. It still is. A fully-featured, cross-platform office suite, supporting over 100 languages, absolutely free to use. And we give you the source code and permission to modify it.

10 years later, today, we conclude our vote to approve the release of OpenOffice 3.4, the latest release in a decade of steady performance and innovation. Here's to the next decade of OpenOffice!
