    Ummm, I think it has some proprietary font stuff that OOo doesn't have, as well as the Adabase database stuff (though rumour has it that OOo has similar features...they're just not apparent). Sorry...that's not much of an answer, but I've started typing and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stop now!

    As far as feature sets go, I'm pretty sure they're virtually identical.

    I registered and downloaded it, just out of curiosity.
    StarOffice has prettier icons, and more clipart. I don't really know how and what the adabas database can be used for.
    Since I complied OpenOffice myself, it runs faster than StarOffice.

    Other than that I haven't noticed any difference. I don't think StarOffice offers enough value over OpenOffice to be worth dishing out the $80. Maybe the manual that you get as a PDF file, I don't know ...

    For prettier icons in OOo you can use Ximians edition of OO or use the nifty KDE tools from to change them.

    StarOffice in my book rates lower than OOo, as I can only get 7.0 with danish spell checking (which I so badly need). However my school hands out that for the price of the CD.. thank you very much SUN, you guys rock - good luck with 100 million desktop deployment in China and again thank you for using GNOME as the desktop of choice
