OpenOffice project celebrates 100 million downloads since version 3.0
Just over one year after the release of OpenOffice 3.0, OpenOffice.org (OOo) project developer Joost Andrae has announced that the free office suite has been downloaded more than one hundred million times since the launch of version 3.0. OpenOffice is an open source office suite from Sun Microsystems for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems. The download total doesn't include, for example, installations included with various Linux distributions or copies included on CDs given out by magazines, so the actual number is likely much higher.
The total number of downloads comes from combining 59.9+ million downloads since OpenOffice 3.0 was announced and 40.2+ million downloads of OpenOffice 3.1. The current number of downloads, including trends for the last 28 days, are available on the project's bouncer statistics page.
The developers are currently working on new features for version 3.2 of the office suite, which is currently in beta and expected to be available at the end of November. The latest stable release of OpenOffice is version 3.1.1. OpenOffice is released under version 3 of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPLv3).
