StarOffice was originally developed by the German company Star Division. The word processor StarWriter presented the basis of the package that first appeared for MS-DOS and subsequently for Windows. In 1999, Star Division was acquired by Sun Microsystems and ported StarOffice to various platforms. The components of the office suite have been changed several times.
