I'm a big fan of StarOffice....& i know that OpenOffice [http://www.openoffice.org] are now developing it on a Open Source basis.... i'm currently in the process of downloading the windoze build so that i can use it @ work... but...

... on the openoffice site, they give instructions on how to build it for MacOSX..

... i would *love* to do this... but before i download a whole wad of source & spend 5 hours compiling it....

*has anyone tried this?*

Do not read this sign.
I don't think the port's done. It's only some of the infrastructure stuff that's ported, so you won't actually get to see anything if you did compile it.

AppleWorks 6.2 is an excellent all-in-one app, and it's completely functional and stable. Granted, it may not have some of the high-end features of Office, but then, that's what Office is for. Speaking of which, what do you have against MS products? Office 2001 for Mac is quite a good product, and having played with the beta of Office 10, I have to say I like it as well.
