Sun Microsystems licensed software

Sun Microsystems: Sun Education Software Portfolio (EduSoft)

Computing Services has an agreement with Sun Microsystems that covers Sun products licensed under the ScholarPAC program for all University owned computers. Licensed software includes:

  • Solaris, Solaris x86
  • Sun ONE Studio Suite (C++, C, Fortran/HPC6, TeamWare)
  • StarOffice.

In summer 2003, Sun Microsystems introduced an academic licensing program, the Sun Education Software Portfolio, that covers many Sun products. Under this program, departments and individuals affiliated with Carnegie Mellon University can download StarOffice Suite 6 and many other applications from Sun Microsystems to use in teaching and academic research after creating a user account at Sun's web site and agreeing to abide by licensing terms that Sun has established.

Note: Sun EduSoft Portfolio software cannot be used for campus wide infrastructure or commercial activities. ScholarPAC licensing must be used to acquire software for infrastructure, e.g. Solaris and compilers for campus wide use.
