There's been some more than usual talks about porting OpenOffice to BeOS/Zeta. Not only does beunited have a project, but another one showed up not long ago.

The ideal of course would be for them to join efforts, but besides that, and though this isn't news, just a reminder, there's a Source Support project, to help motivate possible coders to join the effort. So if you feel like it, donate, or even better, if you're a coder, join a team and "go do, that voodoo, that you do, so well!".
