Sun "seeds" Aust StarOffice user base

"Sun is offering educational and non-profit institutions almost unlimited rights to use its suite of office productivity software StarOffice 6.0 for a nominal fee, believing that it will "sow the seeds" for a large enterprise user-base.

Non-profit and educational institutions can buy the right copy and distribute the software to their members for vocational and personal use for AU$183. Prior to announcing the move a StarOffice 6.0 license package for 500 users would have cost a university or school AU$71,000."
