Java update begs you to install OpenOffice

I was just installing the latest Java update on my Windows VM and noticed that it was pushing me to install OpenOffice. Not only did it offer to do this for me, it checked the box by default.

I unchecked it, then while receiving the Java update I was fed an ad on why OpenOffice is good.

The press would be eviscerating Microsoft for doing this in an update – why aren’t we saying anything to Sun? Is it because they’re “not evil” in some respect?

Whatever.
