OpenOffice.org for OS X (Without X11) :D

An anonymous reader writes "Nearly 6 years after announcing a Mac port, OpenOffice.org has released the first release of OpenOffice.org for Mac OS X that can finally run without X11!! An alpha is available for download today, but a lot of help is still needed to make OpenOffice.org available for Mac OS X. The site is very blunt: 'WARNING: THIS SOFTWARE MAY CRASH AND MAY DESTROY YOUR DATA DO NOT USE THIS SOFTWARE FOR REAL WORK IN A PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT. This is an alpha test version so that developers and users can find out what works and not, and make comments on how to improve it.' Currently missing functionality includes printing, pdf export, copy/pasting, and multiple monitors. That said, if you're interested in participating you can visit the Mac team to figure out how you can help today."

MS Office:Mac

Copy and Paste still does not work, when hitting space, the cursor does not move over, so it felt weird typing for it.

Is this in anyway better than NeoOffice? Or does it not warrant me changing?
This is pre-ALPHA software, not it is not better than NeoOffice in any way shape or form, YET. I can see a lot of potential for this software, since it will be OpenOffice.Org in native form instead of being half emulated through Java and or other means. It will have the look and feel of a real Mac OS X program.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
