      Several years ago, OOo did have a generic installation like
several Linux binary programs do. (The uncompressed installation folder
contains a file named "install" that had to be made executable.) The
observation by Sun at the time was that a large majority of the people
downloading the Linux version of OOo had rpm or dpkg for installing
software on their computers. That is when the change was made to
providing ready made binaries for these installers.
