"The deals--while not with top-tier computer makers such as
Dell, Hewlett-Packard or Compaq--put a tiny dent in the dominance
of Microsoft's Office family. Sun is actively trying to recruit
other computer makers into the program, spokesman Russ
"In a third deal, Sony will include the software with its
lowest-end J100 Vaio desktop in North America. Unlike Emachines and
Everex, Sony will just package a StarOffice CD and won't preinstall
the software, Sony spokesman David Yang said."
"The deals come six months after Sun signed a deal to have
StarOffice preinstalled on some Gateway desktop and laptop
computers. In that deal, Sun can refer customers who want Windows
computers to Gateway, which has a variety of models with the
software preinstalled, spokesman David Harrah said."
