In the April 2, 2007, newsletter, I wrote about an excellent free suite of office programs for the Macintosh, called NeoOffice. Now the producers of NeoOffice have released an update that adds many nice features.
If you are a Macintosh owner looking for a good word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation program that is available FREE of charge, you might want to read my earlier article at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/04/office_software.html. The program has since been updated with support for the native Mac OS X spell-checker and address book; support for high-resolution printing (more than the 300 dpi that previous versions allowed); and the ability to open, edit, and save most Microsoft Office 2007 Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.
Next, go to http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/en/index.php to download this great, free suite of programs.
