Well it is not! I am Solaris user and sometime ago I tried to compile OpenOffice, when
in fact it should compile on Solaris out-of-the-box... I asked the core developers
to drop support for SunStudio since it assumes one compiles with a version that
shipped with Solaris 9 (the current version of Solaris is 11 and Solaris 9 was eoled a
few years ago...) and it does not compile even with recent versions of SunStudio.
And when I managed to compile everything, I had noticed that OpenOffice could
not open docx and othe zipped document formats. The people of LibreOffice
asked me to incorporate my patches to their source tree (I had of course no
objection). Now LibreOffice compiles just fine under Solaris and there are packages
for all variants of Solaris including the Open version. In a nutshell, some people
listen and care about any user while some others just don't give a dime...
