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.

That's not an advantage if I already have it on my computer. Again, I asked about _non-corporate_ users. Who all have office preinstalled when they get the machine, if it's a Windows machine. And they don't care about concepts like "per-seat" licensing, usually.

I'm just trying to see whether there's something about OpenOffice that I'm missing that makes it desirable from a functionality standpoint.

(For the sake of comparison, Mozilla has things like bookmark keywords, popup blocking, etc, that make it a better functionality proposition than IE to certain classes of users. On the other hand, IE has ActiveX plugin support, dynamic font stuff, etc, that make it a better proposition for other users. I'd like to see similar comparisons for OpenOffice vs MSOffice, other than the obvious cross-platform vs not issue.)
