Alternate to using Open Office for ARM UNE

Registered by David Sugar on 2009-12-01

It has been proposed that openoffice performs poorly on ARM for UNE (and desktop), and that there is no suitable alternative in the repository. For this reason it has been suggested not to install OpenOffice on UNE desktops as part of the default applications, but rather offer a link or bookmark to google documents, or a splash application that offers such a link or the option for the user to add openoffice if they choose.
