    Re: OOfFf! = Firefox + OpenOffice.org in a box

    Wow.. That's not a bad deal for anyone looking to get the OO.o package, who may only have dialup.

    Not sure where exactly the Linspire comes into it all, but I wouldn't knock it.

    Now, for anyone interested... you could get the same software by mail if you register at http://www.ubuntulinux.org and click the Shipit - Free CDs link on the right. No cost to you - the ubuntu project will ship out copies of their latest official release (Install + LiveCD). The LiveCD also includes OpenOffice.org and a few other OpenSource packages in Windows format. Note, it takes about 3 months to receive the CDs - but you can order a bunch, and pass them around to your friends / co-workers / geeks...

    Upon further review, it appears that the package may be seriously out of date. With FF 1.5 and OOo 2 just around the corner, the rebate might be a way to clear out inventory in anticipation of the next version...
