You should also check out Abiword, a free open source word processor. Abiword is a mature stable product offering, originally from the Linux world (it is part of Gnome Office). There is a native Mac port.
Get Abiword at:
I have used Abiword for some time, on and off. It is not as MS-Word compatible as NeoOffice, but it is MUCH faster! Abiword DOES read and write MS-Word format however.
