OpenOffice developers have created a version of the open source productivity suite for Apple's new Intel powered Macs.
There is no word yet on when Microsoft plans to unveil its Office suite for Intel Macs.
The current OpenOffice build might still be experimental, but it supposedly is working and it shouldn't take long for an official release to come out. The suite is simply set to beat Microsoft to the new platform.
Running the current Microsoft Office version through Rosetta will result in 50 per cent performance decline relative to the last PowerPC models because the software isn't designed for Intel processors. The performance gap could be just what the doctor ordered for users to start looking into OpenOffice and give the suite some added momentum.
