For those of us who couldn’t face the prospect of installing X11 as a requirement for running OpenOffice on your Mac OS X, NeoOffice has produced a viable alternative (in my opinion) to Microsft for word processing and possibly spreadsheet, presentation, and drawing programs, but I haven’t tried these yet.
A nice clean interface with as many features as I can cope with. Have a go!
We have had some issues with formatting when importing MS Office docs. Something to consider if teachers continue to use MS Office on their TELA laptops (- Apple laps are still licenced for office.)
Trial will continue tho!
