I am always open to finding a open source solution to commercial software. Tonight, I just tried NeoOffice/J 1.1, and I have to say that I am impressed.
NeoOffice/J is based on the OpenOffice.org suite, but the main reason that I like NeoOffice is because it is a true Mac OS X application, and not a X11 application. This means that it uses Mac OS X's printing architecture, clipboard and drag-and-drop support, and native support for Mac fonts.
Several years ago, I paid for Microsoft Office X, but now that there is a good quality open source alternative, I don't think I will pay for an upgrade.
