    I think you still can..

    BTT: I tried LibreOffice and the interface and icons looks far better now than OOo. I like it better than NeoOffice now.

    Aslo made the switch from OO to Libre Office. Seems more stable.

    Try NeoOffice. It's designed specifically for OSX. And it's FREE!

    Will try NeoOffice soon. Who is behind the software?

    Downloaded OpenOffice 3.4? last night and it works flawlessly.
    Unfortunately Oracle has decided to stop developing the suite (read in another thread in PhilMUG, something about donating it to the community)

    Libreoffice is from the same fork and should work as well without installing Java.
    Its a 179? mb download, 10Mb more than OpenOffice. Will check it out too and gove feedback.

    Wish i had money now to buy iWork... :-(

    iWork is cheap. $20 per app. That's only 900 pesos. That's cheaper than many ipad/macbook cases.
    You can afford to have an iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch, a Samsung player and two laptops (both with SSD!) you can afford to pay just a small pittance more :)

    Get Keynote, you can choose not to get Pages or Numbers.

    I also use Open Office, and it works great atm, but I'm very curious about iWork.
    I was also thinking of getting the iWork with my Mac, but it was 2009...just waiting for the new release and I will get it ASAP.
