This is a wonderful thread. However, TC, if you can do it, I would modify it by deleting or conditioning Newtor's December 10, 2007 9:10 pm post. Newtor later posted the correct solution to installing staroffice 8 in the same thread and therefore his Dec 10 post should be deleted. Or, I should learn to read to the end of a thread before following thread instructions. Takes a while to delete 30 Staroffice files.
I most appreciate Newtor's efforts. Most. For what its worth, they work great for the current star office 8 release. But the star office writer still doesn't show in the Office Menu.
