Google Pack now adds StarOffice

The addition of Star Office had added the proverbial Icing on the cake to Google Pack. Google Pack now surpasses the bundled Application that Windows offers with its Operating System with the addition of free Word, spreadsheet and other office applications it pretty much is more than enough for most home users.

With the launch of Google docs, they had squared themselves opposite Microsoft and the war of Titans was on. Star Office is office suite developed by sun. The source code of which was the bases of Open Office. We had reviewed Open Office few week earlier and how it is as good as MS Office.

Now Staroffice Retails for $69.95 which available for free with Google Pack it isn't a bad deal.

Google Pack Contains:-

  • Google Earth
  • Norton Security Scan
  • Spyware Doctor Starter Edition
  • Google Desktop
  • Picasa
  • Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar
  • Google Photos Screensaver
  • Adobe Reader
  • Google Talk
  • Skype
  • RealPlayer
  • And now StarOffice (Retails for $69.95)

This is a impressive list but most of the regular users might have already have most of them. Download and installation is done by Google Updater which great for a Novice but I would rather download them separately.

A gentle reminder Star Office is 143 MB, I guess it will take more than a cup of coffee to pass the time ! Luckily the Google Updater have Pause so you can download at your leisure
