out Microsoft Office 2007, Corel WordPerfect Office X3 and Ability
Jeff notes that each of the
of StarOffice 8, "stand
out as a competitive program in
its own right, loaded with features and intuitive interfaces.
also states that, "Users can purchase
Sun’s productivity suite for
less than half the price of the
cheapest edition of Microsoft Office.
users can run the product on as many as five individual computers at
same time. Better yet, customers can place up to three free phone calls
to technical support in the first 60 days of usage. No other
suite featured in this roundup can say as much.
He concludes his review with
endorsement of StarOffice 8, "...most
users will continue to invest
in Microsoft (and, to a lesser extent, Corel) software simply out of
habit. We encourage users to consider
as Sun’s StarOffice 8,
which earns our Smart Choice designation once again. Why
spend $150 or
$300 when you can get top-of-the-line capabilities for less than $75?
StarOffice 8 is the RIGHT choice, OF COURSE !!!
