Let's be realistic about what we can expect to run on the N8X0, people.
Porting a fully buzzword compliant office suite to it would be like
trying to shoehorn a Cummins 444 engine in to the rear end of a '69 VW
Beetle. Oh yeah, then there's cross-compiling to ARM which makes it even
more fun. Even older versions don't fit the bill. q.v. the specs req'd
for IBM's revamp of OpenOffice.org 2.X...
