StarOffice Now Free From Sun

Wednesday September 1st, 1999

Oliver Strutynski writes, "Sun has aquired the German software company Star-Division and is now giving away their product, StarOffice, for free. They also plan to release the source code under a 'community license'. Star-Office is an MS Office compatible office software running on a variety of platforms including Win32, Solaris, OS/2 and Linux."

From what I recall, StarOffice was free to individuals before Sun's purchase of StarDivision, but the release of the source code is a great step.

#1 Good!

How much is MS Office 2000? I didn't pay for mine.

I use Star Office it feel just like MS Office.

MS kill the Browser Market that Netscape created, Now Sun will kill Office Software Market that MS dominate.

Free OfficeSuite is good but they are also killing Lotus and Corel as well to.
