I know there's endless threads on the topic of iWork alternatives (i've been reading them for days). I could just go ahead and buy the iWork, but would rather try one of the free alternatives (this "it just works" thing is getting expensive). People keep recommending open office aqua. Problem is: when I go to download, the site clearly states that its for "Windows", even though the search is for "iWork alternatives for Mac." I'm brand new to Mac, and would really appreciate useful input, not yet another round of complaints/opinions. Where is the "it just works" philosophy when you need something as simple as a way to write a letter that other systems can read? Sorry if this is more of a rant than an actual question...Thanks for your input in advance.
