According to Internetnews Google is expected to host a press conference together with Sun Microsystems to announce a collaboration to bring StarOffice productivity applications to Google users.
StarOffice is Sun's suite of integrated word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing and database software based on the OpenOffice open source project.
StarOffice or OpenOffice users can add their own browsers and e-mail applications, while Sun offers Sun Java Communications Suite for customers that want to add messaging, collaboration, calendaring and scheduling tools.
With past rumours of email (Gmail), Google IM (Google Talk) and the latest rumour "Google OS", one can only imagine whether the rumour mill is proving itself right. Google currently offers mapping services, photo management, email and instant messaging applications. It's often easy to forget that Google started by offering web searches to thousands of people.
