OpenOffice.org now in Aqua flavor!!! September 7, 2006

Posted by rjdohnert in Application Development, Software reviews, Tech News.

NeoOffice created by Patrick Luby and Edward Peterlin, which used to be the only modern flavor of OpenOffice.org for the Mac has now gotten better.  No more X11 required, all native Aqua.  Very nice port and it sticks primarily to the Mac OS X UI standards.  The dialogs could use more work but I have downloaded the build and its not bad.  Cant wait for the final.  As always, its Open Source and if you like the software consider making a donation to keep it going.  This was not an easy effort Im sure and the guys could probably use the support.

I have yet to go for this Aqua flavor of Openoffice.org….but still I have to say that I have both Office XP and OpenOffice 1.0.2 installed on my laptop. I have been using OpenOffice exclusively for the last month and find it easier to use. The thesaurus in OpenOffice Writer is betten than that in Word. Output in HTML is exceptionally clean. My wife has been using Calc for the past few weeks for all her spreadsheet requirements. We are also introducing OpenOffice to a local school, along with K12LTSP (k12ltsp.org). Great stuff, this open source and I am definately going for their new aqua flavor….
