Sun, Microsoft Pact Viewed As 'Unholy Alliance' Against Linux,

But there were 5 versions of StarOffice first. The OpenOffice source was
released to the open source community by Sun as they were redesigning
StarOffice in preparation for version 6. So you could say that both OO
and SO 6 (and 7) were built on OO source, but Sun was the one who
developed the OO source in the first place, and released it to the public
so that free software developers could do their thing and turn it into a
nice, free office suite.
