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?

Don't you know that exciting headlines, albeit almost never true, generate more ad revenue? MS Pressure is much more exciting than Sun Loses Contract. The first thing I thought when I saw that was that MS had threatened a patent lawsuit or something. So, of course, I click on the story....but it really had nothing exciting. Journalistic ethics are so low nowadays that this is nothing...in-fact, quite normal.
