StarOffice was not spun out.  Oracle continued with an Oracle Open Office for a time.  They
seem to have concluded that was not a sustainable business.

There is also another fork - StarOffice, the predecessor of OpenOffice.
Way back before OpenOffice, Sun purchased StarOffice from Star Division 
and then made it open source as OpenOffice. The last I heard, Sun 
Microsystems was still developing StarOffice as their income product, 
where they sold it and bundled support in with it. Now I do not see any 
connection between StarOffice and Oracle. Did Oracle get StarOffice when 
they bought Sun or did Sun or Oracle spin it off? [ ... ]
