Very interesting information.

However, I never,ever ever ever mentioned any ORCL product so I don´t
know why you bring that up :)

Personally, I´d just envisioned a way to put Apache OpenOffice on my
Linux server and be able to acess it from my Nokia N800 tablet running
Mer Linux and a VNC client, among other older systems, but in a
seamless way, not running a full vnc session with Linux windows
manager etc....

I also have a pair of IBM Network Stations (powerpc) that I can use as
thin clients by booting the FreeBSD port tailored for those.
