Mostly.

There are parts of (Sun's version of) Open Office that are written in
Java, and you do have to have Java installed to use them.

The version of OO.o that comes with Fedora 3 does not have them compiled
in.

I understand that certain Red Hat employees are working on a gcj-based
version of (the java parts of) OpenOffice.org 2, which might or might
not come in Fedora Core 4. The full release of OO.o 2 is due pretty
close to the projected release date of Fedora Core 4.
