Page 1 of 1
Sun Microsystems Inc is reportedly talking to major Internet service providers (ISPs) to include its StarOffice productivity suite of office software into the ISPs' respective services.
According to a Friday report from Computerwire, the Santa Clara, California-based company is hoping to gain 10 percent of the market dominated by Microsoft Corp. and its Office suite by the end of 2004.
The StarOffice software would be a browser-based service priced between $5 to $50 per user per month depending on the level of service, Computerwire reported quoting Mru Patel, business manager for SunONE Desktop Solutions at Sun.
Earlier this year, Sun announced a deal with Lindows.com to include StarOffice in the LindowsOS.
