Google Pack, Google's software download package, <A HREF="http://www.infoworld.com/article/07/08/13/Google-Pack-bundles-Sun-StarOffice_1.html">has added Sun's office suite, StarOffice 8,</A> to its offerings. StarOffice, which Sun normally sells for $70, is free through Google Pack. StarOffice is Sun's answer to Microsoft Office. In 2000, Sun released StarOffice's source code, which is the underpinning of OpenOffice.org, a Sun-sponsored open-source project.
StarOffice 8 lets users create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. It supports most Microsoft Office formats, except for the new formats in Office 2007. It can also export documents as PDFs. The Google Pack version of StarOffice integrates a Google Search toolbar in all of the StarOffice applications.
