Merge the two efforts and StarOffice and just give it away!

What Sun should be doing with StarOffice is just get rid of (not the community, but just the product name) and consolidate to a single known brand: StarOffice. The biggest problem I have seen with people who know something about office suites, most don't even know that StarOffice and are the same office suite. This causes confusion in the marketplace. My recommendation to Sun is, consolidate and StarOffice and carry the free and open torch as 'StarOffice' and for those enterprise customers, sell support services for StarOffice like technical and developer support and maybe other things that can't be free for whatever reason. Having both out there is not doing either one any good.
