OpenOffice.org 2.0 lives on Solaris on x86! But the screenshots below make OpenOffice look just like it does on Linux, you say!? Of course it does, what else did you expect? It's all Open Source, innit? These screenshots are from an internal build kindly provided by the StarOffice product team as part of a bid we're working on. We're working to get a public build sorted. Theshots are actually xhosted from a Solaris x86 box to a colleague's Linux laptop, so don't be confused by the background start thinking Sun have changed the look and feel of JDS. This really shows Open Source at work. The translations, which still have a little way to go to be complete, were provided by a team lead by Alberto Escudero-Pascual. Alberto appears to be one of these open source maniacs who do tonnes of work on all sorts of different projects, often for no financial reward at all and whilst still managing to answer emails almost immediately and remain very helpful. Hats off to him and his team.
And don't forget, if you need to get rid of your litter - weka taka taka katika pipa. (Apparently that means 'use the garbage can'.)
