IBM abandons Lotus Symphony

Apparently 2001 called and asked for its office suite back.

IBM to close down Symphony, its OpenOffice fork | ZDNet : This move can’t come as too much of a surprise. In July 2011, IBM started donating its Symphony code to the Apache Foundation, which is now overseeing the remains of the OpenOffice project. I say “remains” because most of the development energy in the OpenOffice family has been going to the LibreOffice fork. Many users and Linux distributors, such as Ubuntu, have replaced OpenOffice with LibreOffice.
