Is a list of CD-ROM distributors world wide. I do believe that some
people are even selling discs on E-bay. The OEM installs I have seen
have been for Star Office 6.0 which is not as good as OO.o 1.1 - it will
become SO 6.1 I guess. I did see boxed PCs from Time in Tescos with Star
Office installed.
