Well what I'm doing is using NeoOffice (which is free to download) for now and then getting Office 2008 when it comes out. Some people actually just use NeoOffice exclusively because they find Office as just another expense.

Yeah, Ive got neooffice too. If you type and save something on neooffice, can you open it on word on a different computer w/o and trouble, or do you have to save it in a particular format?

neo office is great you can open it in word and when people attatch things in word documents you can open them in neo office. Also neo office has like a power point programme and a spreadsheet in it too.

Its Brilliant

AND FREE!

NeoOffice gives you the option of saving in Microsoft Word format. It even has support for the new standard files like '.docx', something that MS Office for Mac wont have until the 2008 version.

I've been using thinkfree, as opposed to NeoOffice. They let me put PowerPoint on my iPod. It's VERY convenient.

Just out of curiosity, what features do NeoOffice have that things like Thinkfree miss?

Well NeoOffice is an application that sits locally on your hard drive. ThinkFree appears to be a Java app that requires you to be online to access (and by the nature of being Java-based is probably much slower than NeoOffice).
