links for 2008-11-17: StarOffice 9 Released, Norway using OpenOffice

  • StarOffice 9 Now Shipping - Now includes native Mac OS X support. Time to switch from NeoOffice?
  • Sun adds Apple native support to StarOffice 9 - Larry comments on the news saying "My hunch is that StarOffice could find some SMB momentum on the Mac platform. Microsoft Office is costly, Apple’s counterparts aren’t an exact substitute and that void may leave an opening for StarOffice."
  • Norway encourages use of open source software - "Minister of Government Administration and Reform Heidi Grande Roeys said she was granting 2 million kroner ($285,000) to the national center for free software to adapt and promote OpenOffice for such government use as public reports, accounting and archives."

StarOffice In-Flight

I just saw this blog about Singapore Airlines offering StarOffice as part of the in-flight entertainment system. It's a great idea, and I only wish they would have had it a year ago when I had the opportunity to enjoy 20 hours of flying (one-way) on one of their planes!
