Using WebDAV or .mac with StarOffice/OpenOffice.org

Did you know that it's easy to read or write something on your .mac or any other WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) account without using Apple's iDisk Utility - yes, without using a Mac OS or Windows (only for these platforms you can get the iDisk utility)?

Using StarOffice 7 or 8 or OpenOffice.org 1.1.x or 2.0 is available for Solaris™ (SPARC and x86), Linux, FreeBSD, ... and many others... and just using File - Open and typing

http://idisk.mac.com/{member name}/Public
will open the (unprotected) public folder of the .mac account. Under Windows you have to switch from the Windows system dialog to the internal dialog (Tools - Options - StarOffice / OpenOffice.org - Common) in StarOffice/OpenOffice.org.

Isn't it great? It is: Put your presentation - like I did - on your WebDAV account, travel to a conference and load the presentation from the WebDAV server directly into StarOffice/OpenOffice.org - available for many platforms, not just Mac OS and Windows...

It's fine, but in Gnome ... The default system file chooser used by OpenOffice and StarOffice doesn't allow to manually enter path to file to open.
