    Google Distributes Sun's StarOffice for Free



    StarOffice drops the $70 fee to join Google Pack



    Google Pack bucks Google's traditional trend of offering online-based applications and services. The Internet giant is bulking up its Google Pack software suite today with the addition of Sun's StarOffice.



    StarOffice is closely related with the freely available OpenOffice productivity suite. StarOffice, on the other hand, has carried a price tag of $70. Google will offer StarOffice for free in its Google Pack; however, it will not come with technical support from Sun.



    "It's a paradigm shift," said Sun's executive VP of software Rich Green. "It brings together office productivity, networking and search into one offering."



    "Users will benefit from access to a free, full-featured office suite for the desktop," Google said in a statement. "And we've also always believed that users should have choice in their online and PC experience."



    Star Office joins other Google Pack applications which include Google Toolbar for IE, Spyware Doctor, Picasa, Google Talk, Norton Security Scan, Google Desktop, Google Photos Screensaver and Skype.
