Trion (666) writes "Nearly two years after they were expected to announce a Microsoft Office killer (or is it even likely?), Sun Microsystems and Google may finally be planning to do it. Or not. Mary Jo Foley, in her ZDNet blog, has reported that she got confirmation from a Sun representative that the company plans to make a StarOffice-related announcement on Wednesday that will have a "significant impact in the industry about the adoption of Open Document Format and availability of free MS Office-compatible comprehensive office suite". Google had also secretly added Sun's StarOffice software suite to its Google Pack of recommended applications. StarOffice is integrated with Google Search and Google Desktop."
