PC/OS Expansion Pack

I have released the Expansion pack, sorry its late but my flight had a bunch of delays.   I didnt create an ISO of pack because basically of the size, 15 mb didnt warrant an ISO.  Distribution was better achieved by posting the tar.gz file and letting users extract it.  To extract the file just right click the file in Thunar and select ‘Extract Here’ For mobility you can always just a USB key or you can burn it to a CD.  The Update to Openoffice.org will be distributed via ISO and it will work on PC/OS, Xubuntu and Debian 4.  Here is a rundown of the Expansion Pack list.

On the Applications:  Some of them have dependencies to satisfy.  Dont worry about that its necessary for the applications to run properly.
