StarOffice’s plan to rival Microsoft falls flat on compatibility, ease

From Walter S. Mossberg at the Wall Street Journal:
“I am writing this column using a new office productivity software suite for Windows that aims to bring real competition to a market dominated by
Microsoft Office. It’s called StarOffice 6.0 and it comes from Microsoft’s bitter rival, Sun Microsystems.

Like Microsoft Office, StarOffice includes a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation program and database. Unlike Microsoft Office, it lacks an
e-mail and personal organizer module, such as Outlook.”
