StarOffice in the sky

On my recent trip to/from JavaOne, I was fortunate enough to be on Singapore Airlines' new Boeing 777-300ER. What is cool about this is that it has a brand new in flight entertainment system with 100 movies in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Tamil, Spanish and French. About 50 TV programs (check out Sponge Bob, Simpsons and my favourite Futurama), games, music system with customizable playlist, audio books and StarOffice 8! Here are some pics and a running commentary on them. Click on image for a larger view.

This is the new menu system. Go to PC menu

You have word, spreadsheet, presentation and also a file manager which will browse your USB drive. More later. I select Star Impress which is my favourite tool ;-)

Star Impress starts up. Takes about 1 minute.

Impress started

"We are experiencing some turbulence. Please fasten your seat belts". When the announcement came on, you are lock out of StarOffice for the duration of the announcement

The About screen

The IO interface by the screen. There is a network port which does not work. A usb port for reading and writing your files. I do not know what is the top jack is for.

Insert my USB drive to load my Impress document

My presentation on the back of a seat!

The keyboard. BTW, the key is really difficult to press if you have even if your finger nails are just a bit long. You have to exert a lot of force to press the keys.
