SUN MICROSYSTEMS BRINGS COST-SAVINGS TO ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS WITH NO-COST LICENSES FOR STAROFFICE 6.0

6/17/2002 - Sun Microsystems, Inc.'s full-featured StarOffice 6.0 Office Suite - a Sun[tm] ONE Software Offering - is now available under the special no-cost software licensing price arrangement to education and research institutions. Primary and secondary schools (K-12), colleges and universities can employ the new suite at their institutions for an unlimited number of users and pay only for the media (CD-ROM) and shipping - no licensing fees apply. In addition, Sun is providing academic organizations with specially priced support options. The cost-effective deployment of StarOffice 6.0 allows cash-strapped academic institutions to deliver productive and creative tools to advance student learning, while keeping critical budget dollars focused on the students. Lutheran Schools in Michigan have already signed on to make StarOffice 6.0 available to their students and schools. "The cost-advantage and innovative technology applications offered by StarOffice 6.0 make it a viable choice for the Lutheran Schools," said Perry Bresemann, principal of St. Lorenz Lutheran School in Michigan. "Enabling student creativity and providing students with the basic skills related to computer use are an integral part of the curriculum. Deployment of StarOffice 6.0 allows us to maintain and improve student skills."
