    Angry Open Office Warning

    If you install the current version of Open Office it will install Java. Not really surprising since Sun Microsystems sponsors O-O.

    The problem is that it will install an insecure version of JRE over your current one

    You will need to update your Java Runtime Environment immediately after your O-O 3.1 install. You should be at version 6 update 15 which you can download from here:

    http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    Even if you don't use O-O you might check what version of Java you have and apply the update if required.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
