I was reading an article from Linux Magazine that I downloaded from the net
recently. It was an interview with the man himself, Linus. He was asked a
question about applications and Linux, and he said the following about
LT: That's one of the reasons I'm really happy that Sun got bludgeoned into
making StarOffice really open. The difference between StarOffice being
available basically for free on CDs and [StarOffice] being GPLed is that the
next version of StarOffice will be on every single Linux distribution.
Is StarOffice on the CDs for all the new distro's (Such as RedHat 7.0/.1/.2,
and SuSe 7.1 etc)? Also, if I download the ISO for one of these distro's
will StarOffice be included.
If you feel that this isn't really relevant to the list, just send it
directly to me.
