   <li value ="1"><b>Are OpenOffice.org binaries legal for commercial/business

     <p>Yes, you may use OpenOffice.org binaries for commercial use. Please refer to
our <a href="/download/index.html">download page</a>.
-    <p>Alternatively, if you are interested in StarOffice for commercial use please,
see this URL: <a href="http://www.sun.com/staroffice/" target="_blank">http://www.sun.com/staroffice/</a>

-    <p>No. The OpenOffice.org source license does not allow anyone to modify, repackage,
or redistribute any version of StarOffice, or any other commercial version of the OpenOffice.org
source code without an assignment from the vendor. For StarOffice, the vendor is Sun Microsystems.

+    <p>No. The OpenOffice.org source license does not allow anyone to modify, repackage,
or redistribute any version of Oracle Open Office / StarOffice, or any other commercial version
of the OpenOffice.org source code without an assignment from the vendor. For Oracle Open Office

   <li value="3"><b>Can I sell and otherwise distribute OpenOffice.org? </b>
<a name="3"></a>
-    <p>Yes. Our license, the LGPL, allows anyone to sell and otherwise distribute OpenOffice.org
binaries (executable installation sets; the application people can use), provided that the
source is always made available to all, either by link (to www.openoffice.org/) or by inclusion.
If you are interested in selling CDROMs of OpenOffice.org or distributing it via OEM computers,
please visit the <a href="http://distribution.openoffice.org/cdrom/index.html">CDROM</a>
and <a href="http://distribution.openoffice.org/oem/index.html">OEM</a> projects.

-  <li value="4"><b>Can Sun ever take away the code?</b> <a name="4"></a>
-    <p>The simple answer is NO. Once code is released under the LGPL, it can never
be taken away. Once LGPL, always LGPL. Sun has no plans to return to a closed-development
model. Sun is subject to the same rules as the rest of the community, including giving back
modifications under the LGPL . Thus, Sun can never take away the code and the community's
contributions to it. This code belongs to the community as guaranteed by the LGPL.</p>

     <p>OpenOffice.org has been translated and configured to at least 45 languages besides
English. We list supported languages in our<a href="/projects/native-lang.html"> Native-Language
Confederation projects page</a>. These languages are also listed on the download pages.

-    <!--  <p>The differences between StarOffice and OpenOffice.org can be accounted

-      for in two ways: 
-    <ul>
-      <p> <b>A. Differences between StarOffice 5.2 and the future of StarOffice<b>

-        </b></b> 
-      <ul>
-        <li>The source code has undergone some significant changes since 5.2 was 
-          released. Some of these changes are: 
-          <ul>
-            <li>Removal of integrated desktop 
-            <li>Componentization of word processing, spreadsheet and graphic applications

-              modules 
-            <li>Removal of email and calendar and the schedule server 
-            <li>Removal of the browser 
-            <li>Move to XML-file formats 
-            <li>Improved Microsoft filters 
-            <li>CJK support (CJK refers to Asian languages: C=Chinese, simple 
-              and traditional, J= Japanese, K= Korean) 
-          </ul>
-      </ul>
-      <p>These are all changes that were decided upon by Sun Microsystems before 
-        the source code was released to the community. <br> -->
-    <p>The key difference is that StarOffice includes some elements not present in
OpenOffice.org and gives users more legal protection. See Sun's page on <a href="http://www.sun.com/software/star/staroffice/index.jsp">StarOffice</a>
for more information about the product.

+  <li value="6"><b>Can I attach a file to an Issue?</b> <a name="6"></a>
     <p>Yes. Our current limit is 10MB (ten megabytes). Attaching a file to an issue
is a two-step procedure and is not obvious. You must first submit the issue or locate the
issue to which you wish to attach the file. Then, you can add the file as an attachment to
that issue. <br>
       Note: You cannot add OpenOffice.org files natively. They must be added as &quot;binary&quot;
files. This is a temporary problem.<br>
       Hints: Reduce the size of your file as much as possible. And, if you are uploading
an HTML document, be sure to compress it first (Zip or tar it), otherwise it gets corrupted
when others try to download it.
