"Sun Microsystems plans to make public the source code for
StarOffice in an effort to give the fledgling applications suite a
boost with software developers."
"StarOffice -- which was developed by Marco Boerries and his
Star Division company that was later bought by Sun for $74 million
in stock -- includes word-processing, spreadsheets, presentations,
Web publishing, e-mail scheduling and other functions that can work
on various operating systems, including Windows."
