StarOffice 8 Beta looks like Microsoft Word
By Pete Freitag
I downloaded the Staroffice 8 beta from Sun Microsystems last week. It looks like they have come a long way in improving the user interface using native controls, I think you could trick a lot of people into thinking it was Microsoft Word finally.
Here's a screen shot of version 8 beta:
The user interface upgrades were much needed, older versions of Star Office and Open Office, looked a lot like Windows 95! And I still remember the early versions of Star Office, that took over your screen and added their own Start Menu!
StarOffice 8 Beta looks like Microsoft Word was first published on February 25, 2005.
