    Open Office 3 aqua vs. NeoOffice

    Like the title says, has anyone here got experience how OOo 3 aqua compares to NeoOffice under OS X? Reason I'm asking is because I maintain some OS X systems and am looking into replacing the NeoOffice installs with OOo3. But I don't know if that is stil buggy, because it is brand new.

    Thanks in advance,

    NeoOffice 3 EA2 is still development, so it's buggy. OO.o is finally supporting Aqua widgets, and it's stable. Thing is, though, I find NeoOffice to be a bit more Mac like, and it also has enhancements from go-oo.

    So, if you're going for stable, use OO.o, but if you want a bit more Mac like with some improvements, then go for NeoOffice.

    Me, I like NeoOffice a bit more. That's my two cents.

    Open Office 3 is the best.

    I've seen stills of OO.o 3, and they're ok, I suppose, but then I'm not too keen on NeoOffice's appearance. It's fairly clean, it's functional, and it's nothing more than that.

    Obviously it's not as fancy as, say, iWork, but then again it's not trying to pretend it's like iWork.
    Have you ever found something in the second-to-last place you looked?
    If it seems like I am ignoring you, perhaps I am.
