 Open source Mac alternatives

This article lists some alternatives to commercial software packages.

"The core of NeoOffice is the word processor. Besides opening Word files and other text files, NeoOffice can open WordPerfect files (Windows and Mac formats!). It also saves into all of these formats. NeoOffice is a lifesaver at my school, where we are slowly converting to Macs and a lot of older files were done in WordPerfect. With NeoOffice we can open all of these old files. Besides the word processor, NeoOffice also has a presentation program, a spreadsheet, drawing tools, and more. Version 2.0 was just released, and an Intel version is due out next month. It runs a little slow, especially on older machines. "
