StarOffice offers IT real choice

Author: JT Smith

From eWEEK (on Yahoo News): "StarOffice has the interface familiarity and file
format compatibility that will enable it to peacefully coexist with Microsoft Office.
And its cross-platform support and ingenious use of XML (Extensible Markup
Language) will pay dividends in future, more wide-scale deployments.

New features aside, the price of StarOffice-free-should be enough to give
pause to sites weighing their software options in the context of Microsoft's
potentially costly and entangling new licensing schemes."
