Re: Re: StarOffice


	Sorry, but it seems as if I detect a contradiction here. I believe you are 
correct in stating that StarOffice is not free nor OpenSource software, 
therefore StarOffice CANNOT be released under the GPL(GNU General Public 
License) as you stated that it is here. I just wanted to clear that up. 
Perhaps it is my mistake. Please correct me if I am wrong.
	Meanwhile, you might want to consider checking out OpenOffice at 
http://www.openoffice.org/ I hear it is fairly usable in it's current beta 
stage. They're web page says it's being released under three licenses, one of 
which is GPL. Think I'll give it a try myself.
