Yes, I have to agree.
But isn't OpenBSD something for many different systems?
I like to run it on my workstation, somebody else likes to run it as a
OpenOffice is an important application for workstations and the
developers should not forget to distribute it.
Yes, you don't need to run it on a 166mhz pc with 16 mb ram, but one
might want to run it with his new 3,0 ghz machine.
I don't want to multiboot ms for text production.
There might be alternatives, but OpenOffice has as many features as Word
