StarOffice 8 in Singapore Airlines


This is really cool!!!

Singapore Airlines has embedded StarOffice 8 in their seat back entertainment systems on many of their planes. We knew it for a while, but we need proof, right?

Well, here you go. :-)

One of my colleagues was flying back to Singapore from JavaOne (yeah, that kept me busy too for last several weeks! we digress...). He happened to be flying on Singapore Airlines, and didn't forget to snap couple of pictures to show StarOffice availability on the entertainment system. The one below shows StarOffice Impress in action -- he worked on some of his slides during the long flight (travellers can plug in their own USB drives to edit/save files). He says the system worked really well.

Talk about mobile productivity. ;-) Other airlines should follow the leader here...

Very cool! Now get onto JetBlue in the US [back of seat screens on all seats - don't know about the USB] and hook a free trial subscription to a JetBlue/Singapore/whomever flight number [within 30 days of the flight?] and the installed base will surely grow. Kudos to whomever conjured and closed this deal! Go gettem!
