Preface: About this page

One year ago, Sun open-sourced the code to StarOffice. So, today, 2001 October 13, is our birthday. To honor this day and the community who have made such a success, we have put together pages of our accomplishments, features (of the code), stories, testimonials, and more.

The links below represent only a portion of what we can boast of this, our first birthday. And if you have any suggestions for things to add, please send them to
