    Hi all,
    I just switched from neooffice to the openoffice beta. Several reasons but the main one being the inability for neooffice to work in spaces. Anybody else using these? thoughts?

    I have kept up with NeoOffice for some time, but not regular use. The last two downloads of the OO Beta have been very good. So now I am beginning to convert some of my projects (all writing) to OO (actually copies of the original files, in case something goes wrong). I have been satisfied with it so far. I am also going through the tutorial (as time permits) because a few items I used to use in MS Office are done differently and I don't want to overlook some of the capabilities.

    My one concern will be RTL languages (specifically Hebrew). I use Mellel for most of my Hebrew work, but hope OO works too. I don't think NeoOffice handles it correctly.

    I have NeoOffice, OpenOffice beta and OOo-dev on my Macbook. I use iWork primarily, then NeoOffice as its just so much better looking. I wish Sun could get the Neo guys to help with a re-design.

    On a similar note, where the hell is Lotus Symphony?
