Oracle’s “free” $90 (U.S.) Microsoft Office ODF plugin

From The Register:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/04/19/oracle_charges_for_odf_office_plugiin/:

“Oracle is now charging $90 for the free Sun plug-in that teaches Microsoft Office how to use the latest open document format…The Home and Student edition of Microsoft Office 2007 costs $149.95, and the standard edition is $399.94. So, even if we’re kind, the cost of four plug-ins buys you the entire suite.”

Right.

My favourite bit – see if you can figure out what’s wrong with this picture (I’ve GIMPed it to add a little hint):

Oracle's not so free plug-in...
