Up until very recently Mac OS X users have had to make do with the X11 version of OpenOffice, which does not run natively on the operating system. Not the ideal choice for professionals seeking an alternative office suite for their Mac-based work. This was the case until Sun decided to step in and help with an native Aqua version of OpenOffice for Mac OS X users. Now we have the first preview of the forthcoming Aqua edition.
Note that this version is still an early preview. If you look at the issues of concern, the software won't even enable you to print from the applications and will crash when you attempt to quit the application. This means that preferences and other settings may not be stored. Still, it's exciting times for Mac users as it gives Microsoft Office for Mac some additional competition and we're all looking forward to Office 2008.
