Like in all events in History, there's two versions of events. Here's

It had to do with a faction's vocal opposition to the Sun Contributor
Agreement more than anything else.

Oh, and the freedom fighters at LO caused the killing of the
commercial build of OO.o, namely StarOffice (which ORCL had renamed
"Oracle Open Office" -sans the .org-, and developed in parallel with
OO.o, which, at the time of the fork, was at v3.4alpha).

Of course, that's standard procedure for MS-Novell... remeber they
were the first to fork OO.o with their "Go-OO" with patches to support
MS-OOXML (which Sun refused to include).

But we're drifting off-topic, I fear. Whatever floats your boat.
