Forgetting Star Office exists and focusing on OpenOffice or a free distribution of it like SOT.
I kept seeing references to SOT and went to check out their website. I thought I might try the download but as I read the info I started to wonder what benefit they will have over Star Office 6 (once it is released.)
SOT will let you have the 50mb or so download for free but suggest that you apply a 27mb patch (available only to annual subscribers) before you actually use it. I'm not against for pay applications, I just don't see whats free about a $50.00 subscription.
If I'm not midstaken Star Office as provided by Sun has included hard copy manuals in the past, one of the reasons I purchase a linux dist is the quality (and usefulness) of the manuals.
that'll be .02 cents
