StarOffice 8 included in Google Pack now!

Since last weekend, StarOffice 8 is part of the Google Pack!

This means that you get all the licensed 3rd party stuff that is part of StarOffice, but not of OpenOffice.org. These things include high quality fonts, commercial spell checker and thesaurus as well as additional templates. And it comes with our brand new Google Search Bar!

Really a big value add for the Google Pack, IMHO...


Comments:

Good news.

The only problem with the pack is that:

1. It insists on installing the behemoth on my C:. Can't change it to a drive I want.

2. It insists on installing Java - I already have the latest and greatest version of Java on my PC.

Wish the darn thing was more customizable.

It seems like I am just an "old man" trying
to learn to use GMAIL but I could not resist
a "free product." Maybe I will get into trouble
using it with older systems but I have a new
playtoy thanks to the folks at "Google."

Google Pack is getting pretty big, but I don't understand why StarOffice and not OpenOffice, or both options for that matter.
