OpenSUSE has it installed.  However, in my experience, working with
computer networking equipment, I find it rare to need it.  Off the top
of my head, I can only think of one company's products that have telnet,
but not ssh.  On other gear, I disable telnet access, in favour of ssh. 
That same company also doesn't use NTP, which I find annoying.

Use OpenOffice.org <http://www.openoffice.org>
