StarOffice scores Canadian win

Sun Microsystems has recruited one of its biggest customers yet for its StarOffice software, signing a contract with the Ontario Ministry of Education covering 2.5 million students.

The deal, signed May 27 but not announced in the United States until Monday, covers 72 public and parochial school boards in Ontario. All will be licensed to use StarOffice 7, the current version of the package, on all school-owned PCs. Sun representatives did not disclose financial details, but Ontario school officials have said the cost is "minimal." Under its education and research program, Sun provides copies of StarOffice to qualified academic institutions for the cost of the distribution media.
