This is an X-windows-free version of OpenOffice for Mac OS X. They just released 1.1 final, the first version that hasn’t had a Beta sticker on it. In exchange, I sent them a few bucks, since I’ve been using this as my everyday office suite for over a year now. (Confession: I still do dip into Excel now and again, but eventually the OpenOffice spreadsheet will catch up with that too.) It’s not as pretty as a real native-bred OS X app, but for what I need, it pretty well Just Works. Recommended for OS X users, particularly those who like C-$2MS.
