    With the introduction and availability of StarOffice[tm] 6.0 Office Suite, the StarOffice 5.2 download product will be removed on Wednesday May 29, 2002.


    (ZDnet News)
    Sun have announced that they will be removing links to download their popular office suite this Wednesday, following their decision to charge for StarOffice 6. Star Office 5.2 has proven one of the best office suites and has been seen as a free alternative to Microsoft Office thanks to its well-developed import and export filters.

    The StarOffice 5.2 package will now be $39.95 for the deluxe version and $9.99 for a ‘Slim Kit’ version. This is a move that has seen a complete U-turn in the way it is distributed as when Sun bought out Star Division (the original developers of Star Office) it was distributed as a payed product. It has been available on a variety of platforms, including Windows and Linux but has never been available for the Mac OS.

    The open source community rely quite heavily on using the facilities of Star Office for importing and exporting Microsoft files and have reacted strongly to this and the charging for StarOffice 6. Many open source companies have trouble keeping to the community’s ethos of making money from the product, but not selling it and making it proprietary.

    The use of proprietary software by some open-source companies such as Mandrake is now a reality, as they use the offer of Star Office 6 as a sweetener to join their ‘club’ (i.e. pay a regular subscription). Ximian are now also charging for software which allows users to use Microsoft Exchange servers and to add the Star Office 6 package to their desktop by buying Ximian’s packaged product. On the other hand SuSE have chosen to not use Star Office and to move onto Open Office now, but they already charge for their distribution.

    The financial feasibility of open-source is shown in companies like Red Hat who charge for services and support but for many companies giving away software is proving impractical, as the latest developments prove.


    (Sun News)
    Customers have until midnight Wednesday May 29, 2002, to download at no-charge, StarOffice 5.2 software.

    Note that the StarOffice 5.2 packaged product will still be available, after May 29, from Sun at $39.95 (StarOffice 5.2 Deluxe packaged product) or $9.95 (StarOffice 5.2 Slim Kit).

    De quantos milhares de sitios diferentes queres sacar o StarOffice 5.2 mesmo que a Sun não queira ...?

    Até porque é uma estupidez olhar para o StarOffice quando ja saiu o OpenOffice 1.0 que é espantosamente estável ...

    a questão é que eu tenho o staroffice 5.2 dd a semana em que saiu....
    por isso o aviso não era propriamente pra mim;) alem disso é como o tafinho disse, arranja-se o staroffice a potes pela net, penso eu de que, e ainda mais facil vai ser depois dele sair do site oficial.

    o openoffice experimentei a cosia de um ano ou mais, era o open office 6, visto que saiu agora presumo que fosse a versão 0.6 ;) era tao lento a arrancar, isso mantem tafinho? ainda nao saquei

    o openoffice 1 nao e simplesmente o staroffice 6? Foi o que vi em sites pela net. Para a comunidade open source continuar o desenvolvimento. nao sei bem e se vai servir para alimentar o staroffice e se ficam separados.
    tirei o openoffice 1 e pareceu-me fixe.

    Um Abraço

    A. The introduction and availability of StarOffice 6.0 Office Suite, the latest version of StarOffice software, and OpenOffice 1.0, a no-charge, open-sourced version of StarOffice 6.0 software that can be downloaded, have replaced the need to offer a no-charge download of StarOffice 5.2.

    Q. What versions of StarOffice 5.2 are still available?

    A. StarOffice 5.2 - deluxe packaged product and the StarOffice 5.2 Slim Kit are still available. Both of these can still be purchased through Sun or, as available, in retail channels.

    Q. What options are available to customers that want to download StarOffice 5.2?

    A. Customers can go to OpenOffice.org to download OpenOffice 1.0 at no charge; OpenOffice 1.0 shares the same code base as StarOffice 6.0.
