Original OSNews Interviews Today, I had the opportunity to speak with Iyer Venkatesan, Product line manager for StarOffice at Sun Microsystems. He spoke to me at length about StarOffice 8, which will be released tomorrow. Read on for a summary of the interview, and be sure to check out the review at Newsforge as well.

Free software(aka Open source software) is not about giving software away for free.
Software development costs money. Somebody has to pay the programmers.
Sun employs alot of people to work on open office. If they didn't make money from selling Sun Office then openoffice would probably not be in the functional state that it is.
Although I think the licencing of Sun office is unethical.
