Good morning from beautiful and sunny Trenton, NJ all!

So I thought I’d share an interesting experience myself and a colleague ran into last week. We were with a customer building a Linux desktop build for them when they were hit with the potential Excel 2007 calculation error (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,298510,00.html in case you hadn’t seen it). They asked us if there was an easy way to deploy OpenOffice.org (OOo) on a large number of desktops….in the next 40 minutes 🙂

We did some poking around and found out an easy way to deploy OOo on Win unattended. If you unpack the OOo zip file and run setup.exe /qn the OOo installer fires up silently and deploys the whole suite using the default options. Pretty cool!
