OpenOffice.org is Free – BEWARE of sites that sell it to you!

I recently saw the post below on Twitter:

BEWARE – OpenOffice.org is free and you can get it from http://www.openoffice.org

Do not let people con you into paying for it!

— END OF PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT 😉

  1. I think the license of OpenOffice.org allows re-selling. Double-check that, but if so, then it isn’t really a “con”. It’s just another market segment to sell too (those people not tech savvy enough to download OOo)

      Rudolf – thanks for the comment. Yes the licence technically allows reselling. See the FAQ from http://www.openoffice.org/FAQs/mostfaqs.html#3. My issue with this is that they are supposed to link back to OOo, and they often say they are doing this with support, then link to OOo Forums run by the community, then it is a “con”. I guess I’m an idealist. :)
