"Sun Microsystems, Inc...seeking to add value to its highly analyzed acquisition of StarDivision, recently tapped Linuxcare, Inc. to provide service and support for its new StarOffice productivity suite offering."

"Under terms of the agreement, Linuxcare will supply technical support for both developers and end-users of StarOffice for Linux, along with custom development, training and enterprise integration services. "Collaborating with Sun to deliver a complete Linux productivity solution represents a positive step forward in an expanding relationship that will bring significant benefits to enterprise Linux environments," commented Linuxcare president and CEO Fernand Sarrat."

"A central component of Sun's new plan -- based on Fremont, California-based StarDivision's product -- is the StarPortal initiative, which will bring free word processing, presentation graphics, spreadsheet and other office software features to anyone with a Web browser. The suite will also be available as a free download, with minor royalty fees applying to corporate users."
