Google Pack Adds Star Office

Taskee: Website Task Management Made Easy

Google Pack, the simple software installer and updater from Google has added the StarOffice software suite. StarOffice, developed by Sun Microsystems, was released in 2000 and eventually became the basis for the hugely popular OpenOffice.org project.

StarOffice 8 includes word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing and database applications. Typically, the software costs $69.95, but will be free as a part of the Google Pack.

As the Google Operating System blog pointed out, “[i]t will be interesting to see why Google didn’t choose to include OpenOffice.org, the primary difference between StarOffice and OpenOffice.org being that StarOffice includes some proprietary components lke clip-art graphics, fonts, templates and tools for Microsoft Office migration.”

Hopefully Google will find a way to integrate this new addition to the Google Pack lineup, Google Docs, and a future online storage system (still waiting Google).
