According to the post, "Was it you? Someone out there was the one millionth person to download the popular open source word processing suite OpenOffice.org 3.0 yesterday, just in time for a celebration at the community's annual conference in Orvieto, Italy next week. The milestone took just over one year to achieve once OpenOffice.org 3.0 was released October 13, 2008."
"More software projects have gone awry for lack of calendar time than for all
other causes combined."
