First in a couple emails today regarding the TDF/LibreOffice booth at

HI Drew:

Thanks for this effort.

What are your thoughts about also including ODBC and JDBC drivers?

Easy answer - license (you know which ones :) and links please - I can
see no reason to waist perfectly good tracks on a blank DVD.

sqlite w/ jdbc driver would be nice IMO.

sorry for the double post.

I was thinking about a windows version of MySQL, but I'm really not sure
on that. Thoughts?

Yes. There's an interesting implementation of a LAMP stack: XAMPP

Very nice. Performs well on my Windows 7/64 laptop. I think it's best w/
Cygwin, but I haven't used it w/o Cygwin.

Well my only reservation as I think about this in general is that this
is a one off disc for a Linux festival and maybe hitting the windows
stuff too strong is not the way to go - are you thinking of having the
complete xampp distro on the disc?

I think that's the only way to go for Windows. I cannot see why an end
user would install a mysql server, which leaves developers, which leads

W/R/T ODBC and JDBC. I now think this is a duplication of effort.

I'm looking at the OpenOffice wiki (which is where I originally found
the OO <--> mysql connection info). My thought here is that the CD might
include the MySQL  Java connector.  The downside is that the connector
.jar needs to be associated w/ the Java installation (i.e. Java path),
not the LibO installation. I don't really want to get into packaging
details, i.e. including the .jar in a RPM or DEB. I think that's a task
best left to those distros.
 see that LibO is in Debian Experimental. See

The package already includes database connectivlty options for Base. See

And, of course there's the 23-Jan-2011 zdnet post.

BTW, for future reference, I run Debian Testing/Unstable on AMD-64. I've
used Debian for software developement > 10 yrs.
