Google included StarOffice with Google Pack to compete with Microsoft Word

Google is famous for its efficiency, perfection and completeness. Now Google added one more golden feather to its Google Pack Crown, StarOffice. So adding StarOffice, one of the competitive word processor from Sun Microsystems, would leave Microsoft in tension. Obviously, the support from search engine giant Google would increase the StarOffice market share and resulting the slip of Microsoft Word’s market share.

We have observed similar phenomenon in the case of Firefox and Internet Explorer. There was a time when more than 90% of the browsers used were belonging to IE family. Now it has changed, more than 25% percentage of the web browser usage share is under Firefox family. And, we cannot neglect Google’s contribution in this achievement.
