It's a recursive acronym in the same way that GNU and TINT are recursive

Like, GNU stands for Gnu's Not Unix.

similarly:  OOGS:

   OOGS is

... OOGS.

Thus the "extra" O  :-)

Also, "Groupware" is one word AFAIK so no W in my version.  Plus, "OOGS"
is pronounceable, vs. OGWS.  OGS is pronounceable, but it doesn't have
the cool FSF-ish recursive anagram  :-)
