DVDBack23, you might want to change the logo for this article to the Java logo. I almost missed the point of the article, which was to announce Java 6 Update 22 is now available for download. OpenOffice users are the minority here.

Visited the site and it updated Java? Then offered the OO v321 but couldn't find patches. Installed 321 on my Wins7 partition. Does that make me safe? Or subject to becoming a botnet? Wins7 home does not run well on this Amd machine. Freezes, stalls. Had to purchase newer AV software when present was 3 months old. Media center stinks with Diamond 650 tv tuner. Doesn't recognize s-video or composite inputs. Have MS office 2003 but won't install that bloatware or maybe it's not compatible with Wins7. Barf.
