Open Office works great on Windows.  Anyone out there using it on their Mac?

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

Nice to see Network World spending some time on this side of the OS wars, they've had plenty on the other side.

A little known nugget is that almost any native X app will run on the Mac as well, natively - ugly and of course blasts RIGHT out of any semblance of consistent user interface, but it's handy to have if you need. Speaking of which, a direct X11 port of OpenOffice for the Mac is here: http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/download/index.html
