The Google Office I would Go For


At a Tuesday press conference held in conjunction with Sun Microsystems, the company will announce some sort of partnership relating to bringing Sun's StarOffice suite to Google users. There is a Google/Sun event Tuesday morning at the Computer History Museum here in the Bay Area--so we'll known soon enough what's going on. (It might have nothing whatsoever to do with office software.) But I'm writing this Monday night, so I need to engage in random speculation.

First of all, Google and StarOffice are, in some ways, an odd fit. Google is at its most admirably Google-esque when it marches its own drummer, delivering useful tools that are anything but clones of existing products. Examples: Gmail, Google Maps, Google Earth, and, oh yeah, the Google Search engine itself. PC World's Techlog - The Google Office I'd Go For
