b>The Register: There's talk that Sun will be buying StarDivision, makers of the excellent productivity suite, StarOffice. This suite is really good, go download it! I've used it on OS/2 and Windows NT. It's also available for Linux, Java, and it used to be available on the Mac too (I don't know if it still is). IBM was going to buy StarDivision years ago, when OS/2 Warp was at its peak, but for some reason, they backed out. Their loss.
