I believe that monetary sense is the first step, and the freedom one is
the next. Ask Sun; if there are enough Linux developers who are willing
to support StarOffice (for Linux) if Sun releases the source, I think
Sun would think it over.
It's a small box, not unlike our other network computers except this
has a CD-ROM in it and on the CD-ROM it has Linux and Netscape and
some other things.
