Zeta "An operating system without an office suite is limited in its mass market appeal, making this a fairly serious issue. When yellowTAB decided to update ZETA's compiler, much thought was given to this problem in particular, and finally an answer made itself clear."

Open Office is slow, fat, and looks like shit. Hardly a poster child for BeOS decendents. When it's ported, I'd suggest they hold back, take a holiday, then take some time to polish what they've got. Why? First and foremost, Yellow Tab shouldn't confuse being warm and fluffy towards Open Office with their own need to make Zeta fly. If they embrace Open Office with closed eyes and a drippy smile, they're just going to drag themselves down to its level. Better to force Open Office to smarten up rather than yourself dumb down.
