As a college student, I must say NeoOffice is a great way to go. Full compatibility with MS Office file types and it's never lacked a feature I needed so far.

Should be a checkbox to 'allow tap for click' or something like that same place you allowed the two fingers+click in preferences.

Personally I love NeoOffice. Free, open-source Office suite. It's been better than MS Office for me. It has spell check. No grammar check, but I've never used grammar check anyway. It always...

I'm with everyone who says the two-finger tap is wonderful. I'd definitely try it on other laptops if I ever used any others. I love my MacBook's trackpad, and I rarely ever touch the button. I...

I was assuming he either already has Office 2007 or needed the Vista version for VBA macro compatibility reasons or something.

However if that's not the case, I recommend NeoOffice! :D

Depends how much you'll use the internet while Bootcamping. If you'll mostly just be using Office, then I don't see much point in installing AV software. Maybe a free one just to be safe, but...

NeoOffice is great. That's what I use. It's a free, open-source office suite with its own versions of MS Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, in case you need any of those, too. Also, it's completely...

The way you described it, I'm not sure if it's some kind of embedded player or something, but if it's a regular WMV, then Flip4Mac will allow Quicktime to play it.

Welcome back :D

It is like an old friend, isn't it?

Oh, and if you still like the hardware on that PC but hate Vista, why not put Linux on it? Look into Ubuntu or Red Hat ;)

Up to Office 2008. OpenOffice.org and NeoOffice offered support for the new '08 xml formats even before Microsoft offered an update to make Office '04 compatible with them.

Intel chip or not, anything .exe still isn't going to run on a Mac.
