StarOffice continues to fly high with Singapore Airlines


My original post got picked up quite a bit in the blogosphere (and yes, I admit that it had the best pickup in my 16 months of blogging at Sun). The response, in part, prompted us to issue a formal press release.

And now, media outlets have covered this office-suite-in-the-sky story:

--  StarOffice, Linux Fly High on Singapore Airlines – eWEEK (also appeared in DesktopLinux.com and Channel Insider)

--  Sun to offer StarOffice on Singapore Airlines – IT Week (also appeared in iTnews.com.au, VNUnet and Computing UK)

--  Sun, Singapore Airlines Take StarOffice to New Heights – CRN (also appeared in ChannelWeb)

--  Singapore Airlines Deploys Sun Microsystem’s StarOffice Software – SDA Asia

--  Singapore Airlines providing a new service for stakhanovists – AvioNews

--  StarOffice Goes to 11,000 meters with Singapore Airlines – setteB.IT (in Italian)

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...
