    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.

    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.

    openoffice now has an alpha of aqua version, no X11 needed.
