    Default "Tenk You Veddy Much"

    Oh wow! That's INSANE! I was not aware
    And the computer with all the viruses at our place had Java.

    In my computer class we're using Turing, but in Grade 11 they go into Java.
    After reading that, I'm a little worried. Why would they keep Java if it's unnecessary?
    Or is the school board just unaware?

    Fair enough, but if you are running open office can you remove Java and will open office still function properly or is a reinstall required?
    Thanks

    The best way would be to test it.

    Its a simple reinstall if it is required.
    Always remember you're unique.

    Unless you use Base a lot, the rest of OpenOffice works fine with only a very few shortcomings. I use OpenOffice every day without Java installed, and have never been prompted to install it.
