Oracle's acquisition of Sun Micrososystems has been controversial among a certain set of techies that worried some of Sun's projects that rely on open source code might suffer at the hands of billionaire Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. The latest indignation is the discovery that Oracle has changed the terms of the license to use a plug in that converts Open Document Format files so that users can work with them in Microsoft Office.

Don't you guys check referenced links before you comment?

There is a link in the article to another article which clearly states $90 per license minimum of 100:

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13505_3-20002921-16.html

... which references:

http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Oracle-start-charging-for-Sun-s-Office-ODF-plug-in-981132.html

And after a google search I end up here:

https://shop.oracle.com/pls/ostore/f?p=ostore:product:2689577594337822::::P3_PPI,P3_LPI,P3_METRIC,P3_TERM:3710062267511641485310,3760869190131631757316,Application%20User,_Perpetual

Which shows $90 per license (for the perpetual version), 100 minimum.
