so, is that the only choice, a manual non-deb install? to take the question 
further, is openoffice worth the effort? how does it differ from the last 
iteration of staroffice? having to resort to a java download from sun just 
reeks of submission to the same manner of hegemony that microshit employs. 
whether it's wanker mcneally or wanker gates, in both cases, there's a wanker 
desirous of compliance and submission.
