I just recently switched to OS X after having spent the last two years on Mandrake. I'm in the middle of writing a book and wanted a word processor for the Mac. I really didn't want to buy M$ products because I didn't want to get caught in a proprietary vice-grip. So I checked out Abiword, Mariner Write, Mellel, Nisus Writer Express and Ragtime Solo. Unfortunately none of them are really industrial strength enough to meet my needs.

What I wanted was OO.o but when I installed it on OS X between the fonts and it's complete inconsistency with the Mac world I was in a lot of pain. Then I found NeoOffice/J. It was like a birthday present! In fact, if it just had support for mouse scrolling it would be so good that I really wouldn't even need to think about anything else.

But in any case I wanted to say thank you. You really made my transition from Linux to Mac a whole lot easier!

Thanks Again,

P.S. I have been using NeoOffice only for a few days now so if there are any serious reliability problems I haven't run up against them yet. I did see some mildly strange table sizing behavior but nothing any odder then the sort of thing I would see in Open Office generally.

Of course I do appreciate the irony that just after posting my thank you NeoOffice/J crashed for no apparent reason. Oh well, y'all did very clearly say that it was experimental software.

While installing / updating some software in the last few days, it seems that an installer removed the /tmp link, which caused Neo/J to crash at startup (and a lot of other apps of course), So I woul just check that /tmp is still a link to /private/tmp just in case.
