IBM offers it's flavour of Open Office for free

From the Inquirer: 

IBM ANNOUNCED in New York City yesterday that it will offer a complete set of office productivity applications as free downloads. Branded as IBM Lotus Symphony, the office suite will include word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs.

Implementing the XML based file and display formats of the ISO standard Open Document Format (ODF) specification, Lotus Symphony will be based upon software written by the Open Office coalition, which IBM has joined along with Sun, Google and others. Last week IBM announced that it has dedicated 35 developers to contributing code to Open Office.
