Google Pack, a list of softwares which are specially chosen by Google now includes Star Office, which is a very popular office suite that is designed by Sun Microsystems.

Softwares available in Google Pack are:

  • Google Earth
  • Norton Security Scan
  • Google Desktop
  • Firefox with Google Toolbar
  • Adobe Reader
  • Skype
  • StarOffice (includes Javaâ„¢)
  • Google Toolbar for IE
  • Spyware Doctor
  • Picasa
  • Google Photos Screensaver
  • Google Talk
  • Real player

Though Star Office sells at $70.00 through Google Pack it comes for free.

In the words of Ionut Alex Chitu :-

"It will be interesting to see why Google didn't choose to include OpenOffice.org, the primary difference between StarOffice and OpenOffice.org being that StarOffice includes some proprietary components like clip-art graphics, fonts, templates and tools for Microsoft Office migration.

The next step would probably be the addition of a plug-in that lets you synchronize local documents with Google Docs & Spreadsheets, so you can have the best of the both worlds: edit complicated documents offline, collaborate and store files securely online. For now, StarOffice is integrated with Google Search and Google Desktop."
