OpenOffice has had a little nag tab in the upper-right corner of Writer for a few weeks now, I finally bothered to see what updates it wanted me to install, here's it:

Does anyone else see the nonsense of installing language files for those different than the language installed by default, and then asking to update the redundant files by nagging the user?

Maybe it was an installed language?

That seems to be the case, this isn't anything spectacular - just annoyed at the setup process... I guess I need to create more custom installers :\ I was sure nearly all other products don't include other popular languages by default (apart from Nero which has German selected by default when using the custom installer). Really peculiar to be interrupted for such an unexpected purpose.
