The hidden 64 bits builds

Postby RGB » Thu Oct 16, 2008 6:21 pm

One of the news on version 3 is the availability of official 64 bits builds for Linux. You can easily find them (both, rpm and deb) on the mirrors... but there is not a single word about their existence on the download page.
The question is, why? Official 64 bits builds are a good thing, they exists, but how many people use the mirrors as their first download place? I think this deserves more publicity...
What do you think?
There are two types of people: those who believe that there are two types of people and those who do not.

I don't have a 64 bit machine myself, but I do agree 100%. If those 64 bit builds really are official, and Sun has taken the time to compile them officially, then they most certainly do deserve recognition and publicity within the original anoucement.

Since the downloads page doesn't reference them, here is the official download URL for the 64bit Linux version: ... sion=3.0.0
Ubuntu 11.04-x64 + LibreOffice 3 and MS free except the boss's Notebook which runs XP + OOo 3.3.
