StarOffice, Linux fly high on Singapore Airlines

Thanks to new USB ports embedded in the armrest of each chair (near the headphone jack), passengers now can use a USB key (aka thumb drive) — or other portable drive — to access their documents, spreadsheets, and presentation files from software running on the plane’s Linux server.

I’m not sure that I would ever run into that right combination of no laptop and urgent need to edit documents, but that’s pretty neat nonetheless.
