Gah, there are sixty thousand threads about this. If you don't want to spend any money, and you'll be in a college / university setting, just get NeoOffice.

Have you tried NeoOffice? It's like OpenOffice but designed for Mac.

NeoOffice is good, but it's slow and not the prettiest program I've used.

I've heard good things about Bean:

Never tried it myself, but it's free and looks nice.
