Freedom from the Office (MS Office that is)

NeoOffice
NeoOffice is a free and nice alternative to Microsoft Office and unlike OpenOffice it doesn’t need X11 to run. It runs natively in Mac OSX by using Java.

So if you’re in need of an office suite for you Mac OSX machine and have more important things to do with your money (rent, food, childcare, beer) then head over to NeoOffice and download a copy. Just set your preferences to save all files as Microsoft Office format files and you’ll be able to share your documents with all those people that actually added to Bill Gates’ wealth.

If you’re using Windows then just use OpenOffice since that will run natively in XP.

And for those who rather use an online app there’s still ThinkFree Office and the free suite offered for Gmail users in their accounts.
