Giving up OpenOffice

Finally Oracle saw some light and decided that OpenOffice could not be continued to be under their governance and had to be given to the community (by handing it over to Apache Foundation). That's one good move but it's way too late. Better late then never.

Edit: Curious, why didn't Oracle simply hand over the rest of OpenOffice to The Document Foundation which already have huge community support and have been working on LibreOffice fork for a long time, whereas, Apache hadn't done much on OpenOffice ?
