Finally all archs have moved over to openoffice / openoffice-bin 2.0.x, so now is the time right time for a big cleanup. I've already removed openoffice-ximian-bin (which I never felt quite comfortable with anyway, as we used the package of another distro), openoffice-ximian will be the next.

Since I blogged the last time there also was the release of openoffice-2.0.1, no major new stuff, mostly bug fixes. One thing most of you won't have noticed though: For GNOME users there is now a built-in quickstarter (only in the built from source version), it's still a little bit rough around the edges, but it generally works :)

If you want to try it out, go to Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Memory and select "Load OpenOffice.org during system start-up". Unfortunately it won't add itself to the session atm, so you will have to do this by hand too. Just add "ooffice2 -quickstart -nologo -nodefault" in the GNOME session preferences.

And here the obligatory screenshot:
