Re: [school-discuss] FW: OpenOffice in education


Yes this is all true.  BUT, I cannot give out copies of Star Office to all my students and staff to take home and install on their PCs for FREE.  I can with OpenOffice!  This is why we use OpenOffice.

You can give all of your students, their parents, alumni, faculty and friends Star Office for free.  You'll find templates, examples, more fonts, better rendering, etc. with Star Office. You'll also find accredited curriculum, certifications, etc. for free.

The Sun Academic Initiative  can be found at:



Explains for to obtain Star Office for free.

The Open Source Software Institute has an initiaitve to obtain college credit for people who take the courses through our University Sponsor. That will come in the future.
