It is my understanding that StarOffice was the OpenOffice cash cow for 
Sun.  So, when you purchased StarOffice, you got Sun support for a 
specified amount of time, much like proprietary software products.

There is still a StarOffice website .  However, 
it doesn't look like the website offering (StarOffice 9) has kept up 
with OpenOffice and is far behind.  It also does not look like they are 
offering paid support.
