Google and Sun together "Google and Sun Microsystems will hold a press conference on Tuesday at which they're expected to announce a collaboration to bring StarOffice productivity applications to Google users..."Imagine StarOffice running on the desktop, and Google perfecting the [file synchronization]," said Edwards. "Then you have your collaboration space carved out immediately for you, and Google is hosting it.""

Does it even make sense for a company that is selling open standard, network centric, highly scalable applications on Unix combines with a company that invented Java?

Imagine a host of GApps (GMail, GCal, GIM, GWorld, etc.) working on your desktop.

Via Update: Sun Marries Google? and a smidge more Sun turns up volume against Windows Vista and Office 12 (links to The Value in Volume).
