OS X and the office Thu, Jun 2, 2005

Finally had a reason to look for an Office Suite type software application for OS X. I actually didn’t even look very hard. Been using OpenOffice for quite a few years on Linux and, while it’s slow, I have always been happy with the results. Went out and about searching and found NeoOffice/J for my little iBook. Works really well so far. Like always it’s a bit sluggish, but it seems to be able to handle most of the microsoft documents I’ve needed to view and edit. Not sure it could handle some of those extreme spreadsheets that accountant types throw together once in a while. Luckily I only have one dot in spreadsheet-fu and rarely need to view such monstrosities. Hope to keep it that way.
