In the BetaNews article, the paragraph, "However, news surfaced late Thursday that the Microsoft Office alternative lost a large contract, striking a blow to Sun's efforts and raising questions as to the suite's viability outside of the Linux and open source community." seems to be more of an opinion of the article's author, rather than based in any factual evidence.

Yet somehow, that seems to make it into the OSNews headline as "MS Pressure". Precisely what pressure was applied by Microsoft that caused the delay of Star Office 8?
