Sun is working closely with Apple to port its StarOffice suite to the Mac.
The partnership is expected to produce a Java-based version of OpenOffice by the end of the year, followed by a commercial StarOffice release sometime in 2003.Two weeks ago, we reported that Microsoft wasn't too happy about the lackluster sales of its Office v. X suite and was considering dropping support for the Mac. We now know why. There are some obstacles to this, to be sure, but MS must be miffed to learn that Apple is actively working to support a competing product.
"I think you can see OpenOffice running solid on OS X by the end of this calendar year," said Tony Siress, Sun's senior director of desktop marketing solutions.
