I got an email with an attachment I wanted to read whose name ended in
.sxw. Clicking on it baffled OS X, so I asked around and
someone pointed me at
which is part of
NeoOffice. I got a hurried and
entirely opaque explanation of how this is using Java/Cocoa magic to sweep
the Open Office X11 under the carpet, but hey, it seems to work, despite lots
of “This is a Beta!” warnings.
It handled the
.sxw, and then I pointed it at a
.doc and a
.xls and it was fine with those, too.
The only downside so far is it doesn’t have the real Aqua look.
