  1. It feels a lot like OpenOffice.org and StarOffice in some ways. Is it in some way derived from one or the other codebase, or is this something original from IBM?

    It even has the sxw format listed as “IBM Word Processing Document”.

    Though, the tabbed interface is nice. I know someone who has been complaining that OpenOffice.org doesn’t have that for a while. I need to explore it more, though.

  2. IBM’s Lotus Symphony is based of of OpenOffice 1, and which version of 1 I am not sure, I just know that they decided to use an older version of OpenOffice on which to build off. Since OpenOffice is based on StarOffice, they all are in the same code-base family.
