    Like tjb1 said, TextEdit is the default text editor in OS X.

    There is an app called Pages in the App Store (if you didn't know already) that is basically a much more advanced version of TextEdit that you can do a lot more with much more simply, for $19.99.

    I would recommend Pages over OpenOffice if you are willing to pay for it. Apple makes it really simple to create great looking documents, plus if you need help with Pages, Apple has an iWork team to help You.

    Always makes me think of good 'ol Ubuntu. It's a pretty good free solution (though, I'm so used to the UI of Word (2008/11) and Pages that I get annoyed of the Open Office layout).

    I agree. MS Word, love it or hate it, is the standard. I just wish they would fix some of the pagination bugs that have been around since 1995. Still beats all the alternatives. Office 2003 for Windows is the best implementation in my opinion.

    CFII, if you are a student you can get Microsoft Office on the cheap. I highly recommend it.

    If you want to make a resume, you should invest in Pages. For $20 it's way more bang for the buck than MS Office (if for no reason other than you can just buy the app you actually need) and you'll be able to create much more impressive looking documents.

    For electronic delivery, you can export your document as Pages, Word or PDF formats. You can also export documents it as ePub files if you want. It's really an excellent product and you can get it right from the App Store on your Mac.
