    Could someone tell me how I can make my computer automatically open office documents with OpenOffice and not Microsoft Office?

    click on the word document (or excel spreadsheet, or whatever), hit "apple-i", then under "open with" choose OpenOffice (isn't it NeoOffice for Macs?), and click "Change All..."

    That should be it.

    edit: what discounteggroll said works too

    That works if I do it for each document, but is there a way to make it so that everytime I download a new Word or Excel file it automatically opens with OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office.
