Google and Sun Partnering
In early October, Google and Sun announced an agreement to work together more closely in the future. Currently, the only tangible piece of this agreement is that the Google toolbar will be an option when you download the Java programming tool. Because Google generates revenue from its toolbar, this should provide a wider installation base and, therefore, more revenue for them. Ultimately, Sun is hoping that this agreement will make it easier for customers to obtain StarOffice, its OpenOffice project.
