StarOffice vs. OpenOffice

I bought a laptop on Friday. For the most part, I'm gonna see if I can install with free (as in beer, mostly) software, rather than software for which I have to pay lots of money. Mostly, this is because this is a play machine. Largest use for this will be to access email and browse the web. WinXP is pre-installed; I am not going to muck with Linux for a play machine.

Which brings me to my first dilemma, should I use StarOffice or OpenOffice? Anyone have experience with either, especially recent versions?
