OpenOffice Portable 3 will drives storage maniacs go crazy

This is the type kinda news that will drive storage maniacs and Linux die-hard fans go crazy at the same time, did I say storage? Yes indeed, storage. That's three times mentioning storage for you. ~LOL~

A'write, here's the news: 3 has gone portable and ready for your thumb drive. Portable is a full-featured office suite that's compatible with Microsoft Office, Word Perfect, Lotus and other office applications. It's easy-to-use and feature-rich, performing nearly all of the functions you'd expect in an office suite, but at no cost. Portable is an integral part of the Suite™.

By default, the 86.4MB (download), ~240MB (installed) portable app includes the Galaxy icon set. To add the Classic, Crystal, High-Contrast, Industrial and Tango icon sets users can install the Portable 3.0 Image Pack.

Strange enough, this 3 Portable is only available for Windows, or via Wine under Linux/UNIX. Hopefully this doesn't dissappoint open source enthusiasts, and keep on cheering for a Linux version soon.
