Googlepack now has StarOffice


I was just reviewing the contents of the google software pack when I see that today they have replaced OpenOffice with Star office.

An article on Techdirt mentions that Sun had talked about this 2 years ago. Although the article miss states that Staroffice is based on OpenOffice. It actually is the other way around. Sun purchased Staroffice and is the major contributer to the OpenOffice project. It appears that sun and Google may be trying to topple Microsoft office as the office suite of choice. It may take a while but with time they may succeed.
