Tonight’s first phone call had me bobbing my head to my ring tone. The caller says they are thinking of switching to Mac as their primary machine. They are familiar with Open Office, and have heard the Microsoft Office for the Mac… and that it’s not very good. He wonders if there is a good, solid application for word processing for the Mac. He’s in luck. One of our live community members took Open Office, and created NeoOffice. NeoOffice is a full-featured set of office applications (including word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, and database programs) for Mac OS X. Based on the OpenOffice.org office suite, NeoOffice has integrated dozens of native Mac features and can import, edit, and exchange files with other popular office programs such as Microsoft Office.
Released as free, open source software under the GNU General Public License (GPL), NeoOffice is fully functional and stable enough for everyday use. The software is actively developed, so improvements and small updates are made available on a regular basis.
