OpenOffice.org wiki overwhelmed in UI search
Yesterday Project Renaissance, OpenOffice.org's search for a new UI direction, opened for comments on the fifteen proposals currently submitted. Unfortunately, a posting on Slashdot meant that over 40,000 accesses happened in a short time, taking down the wiki.
The Project Renaissance team have now fixed the server and it is open again for comments. Comments on the proposals will be collected until the 25th of May, when the project moves into its next phase. Project Renaissance has been collecting information and running surveys as part of the project to examine user satisfaction with OpenOffice and develop a future direction for the open source office suite.
