WSJ: 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.
My spin: Glad to see that Walt and I agree.
StarOffice (and even other “shareware” type programs like this) is “ok” but it’s not up to the strength of Word or even Word Perfect
