    I need to find where to DL a version of Open Office that is UB. I know its not final yet, but I need it.

    I have a large Excel Doc to calculate and with MS office running in rosetta, I get a spinning beach ball with Excel using 200% of my CPU for hours.... on my PC at work, it takes 10 min of calculation....

    So I need a native solution.. plz even if its alpha

    Thanks

    OpenOffice does not exist for the Intel Macs. NeoOffice is the only "native" (although, not totally native) version for OS X. But it is based on Java and does not run on the Intel Macs. NeoOffice is based on OpenOffice 1.3 (or something like that).

    OpenOffice 2.0 does not work on Intel Macs either.

    My friend's been running a non-qa'ed Universal build of OpenOffice on his MacBook Pro without any problems.

    I'm not sure which one to download...
    When I go into their server I click 2.0.2rc4 and then go to the Intel, EN-US one thinking that it would be the best choice. Then I open it and nothing happens. Help would be great.

    Is this the one you have downloaded?
    ftp://ooopackages.good-day.net/pub/...4/OOo_2.0.2rc4.20060408_MacOSXIntel_en-US.dmg

    BTW, do you have X11 installed? Otherwise OpenOffice will not work.
