i just saw that openoffice 1.0.1 was finally released as a beta for mac osx. as the website says "It still uses the X11 Window system but is now more functional and more robust than before". there has been speculation over the past few months that apple was working on porting openoffice to the mac in a native carbon form, but if that's true, would the openoffice team try to do the same thing in a parallel but seperate effort? i'm assuming that before starting heavy work on openoffice, apple will wait until the darwin sources are stable, but the statement from the oo website made it sound like they might be working on a native port as well. i seriously doubt that both teams would undertake such a giant task independently of each other, so are the apple rumors unsubstantiated, or am i reading too much into the oo statement?
