Geneva Tax Authorities Distribute Mozilla 1.2.1 to Taxpayers

Saturday February 15th, 2003

The German Heise magazine is reporting that all taxpayers in the Swiss canton of Geneva are being given a CD which includes a French version of Mozilla 1.2.1. The CD also includes GEtax 2002, a tax declaration program, and OpenOffice.org 1.0.1.

Though the Heise article is in German, a rough English translation is available courtesy of Google. Thanks to johann_p for the news.

when you get a piece of software "bundled" with your machine, you are still paying for it, its just hidden in the total cost. many people buy machines without bundled software, i've never bought a machine with office preinstalled... so for many reasons the fact taht office costs $369 and open office does all you could need, for free, is a pretty compelling advantage.

as for actual technical differences, there must be a feature comparison published out there somewhere, probably on one of suns star office sites.

but lets reverse your question, what features does office have to make it worth $369 more that open office?
