Differences between StarOffice and OpenOffice.org
* The source code available at OpenOffice.org does not consist of all of the StarOffice code. Usually, the reason for this is that Sun pays to license third-party code to include in StarOffice that which it does not have permission to make available in OpenOffice.org. Those things which are or will be present in StarOffice but are not available on OpenOffice.org include:
o Certain fonts (including, especially, Asian language fonts)
o The database component (Adabas D)
o Some templates
o Extensive Clip Art Gallery
o Some sorting functionality (Asian versions)
o Certain file filters
o Commercial spell checker, synonym dictionary
o Management tools
For more information on the current features of OpenOffice.org, please see the "Features" page.
