I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I think it has to do with its
relationship with staroffice, as openoffice started with sun releasing
code for a previous release of staroffice. So i think that is why its
still in java, it would be too much work to re-implement i guess.

IMHO, Isnt that pretty much openoffice anyway?
