[Update: this blog posting gives additional perspective.]

I'm interested NeoOffice, but it's worrisome that it still not using native OpenOffice file formats:

NeoOffice 1.2 is an open source, Mac OS X-native version of the office suite, which includes Microsoft Office-compatible word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and drawing applications. This release adds the ability to import 2.0 documents, use of Apple's Java 1.4.1 and Cocoa APIs (instead of Java 1.3.1 and Carbon), support for printing EPS images, and support for all accessibility features, among other changes. NeoOffice is free for Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4.
Since it's Cocoa, do OS X services work? I'll give it a try.
