My wife and I are looking for an office package for the Linux and Apple
environments. We are thinking about either Open Office or Star Office.
Does anyone here know of or recommend other alternatives? We know that
Open Office is a free, open source software and that Sun sells their
Star Office for $70 if you download it from their site instead of buying
the CD. Any comments here? Other worthwhile office packages?
Also, we recently bought an iMac laptop and we don't want to contaminate
it with the MicroCrap office suite. But the problem is that Sun does not
make a version of Star Office for the Apple environment. We are weary of
installing Open Office in our Apple laptop because there are occasional
problems with it that you don't get with Star Office but at least it
will work in a Mac environ. Any suggestions here?
We are happy with our new laptop but now we are feeling screwed over
because of this issue regarding office applications. What good is the
computer if you can't do anything with it? I know that's an exaggeration
but it's very true as far as this particular problem is concerned.
Any and all comments greatly appreciated. Thanks!
