    Specs:
    Black Macbook C2D 2GHz 3GB RAM 250GB HD iPhone 4 iPad 3G
    Aqua version of OpenOffice.org
    A beta version of OpenOffice that doesn't require X11 has just become available for download.

    OpenOffice.org for Mac OS X

    Though I guess NeoOffice is still the choice for many as it looks more like a Mac application than OpenOffice

    I'd call it an Alpha release.
    Very long bug list

    The Beta version is due out at the end of 2007 according to the current timeline:
    http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/timeline.html

    Other reports:
    No printing
    Cut and paste is not fully functional
    It crashes frequently

    Stick to Neo Office for the time being if you want Office software that works.

    I already own MS Office, so I already have Office Software that works!. Most of those bugs are not a big deal for me, it'd be nice to play with it just to see how it looks/works.

    Most people looking for Free Office software do not have enough $$$$ for MS Office.

    Or they are just cheap......



    Sorry, $149 is not really that expensive, although that it relative.

    I agree. $149 isn't bad for a good Office suite.

    OpenOffice and NeoOffice are nice, but I just don't like them. That's my personal opinion, as I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who love their free office suites
