and does the alternative offer the same benifits as MS or close to the same benifits.
I would have have to agree aswell, but if you want something else get iWork or NeoOffice, i tryed both and like them both.capone2 said:i know office is pricey BUT i will tell you that office 2004 is great and the subs wont give you all the bells and whistles. I REALLY enjoy it and could never imagine being without it. !
From what I can recall, neo-office is os x native and in aqua and the like whereas open office needs X11 I think. I believe neo office is also about a revision behind the most current version of open office usually due to the porting of open office to mac aka neo officeNermal said:Is there a reason to use OpenOffice instead of NeoOffice?
NeoOffice is just a port of openoffice that can run on Mac OS X natively, I personally find it very slow. Open Office at the moment has to be run in X11. the next version of open Office can run natively, not sure if betas have been released. when it is released I believe it will be better than NeoOffice!Nermal said:Is there a reason to use OpenOffice instead of NeoOffice?
