Fans of OpenOffice
, the open source alternative to MS Office, rejoice! Sun, the company that puts the dot in .com, has just announced
that they are joining the OpenOffice Mac porting project. What does this mean? It means that the chances of a Aqua version of OpenOffice materializing has just gone way up. Jim Parkinson even suggests
that Sun might port StarOffice
(which is the version of OpenOffice that Sun distributes itself) to OS X.Thanks, Mark.
