Features, Office Last week, IBM unveiled the first version of their OpenOffice.org offshoot, Lotus Symphony. Symphony is aimed at professional users in a corporate environment, but brings to OpenOffice.org many UI enhancements in an attractive, single tabbed interface. Symphony 1.0 runs on Windows and Linux; while the site used to suggest a Mac version was forthcoming, there is currently no reference to a Mac native version of Symphony. The Lotus Symphony website has been updated to reflect the recent release, however, downloads are very slow at the moment "due to high demand."

Mac users can use the iWork suite, or the Microsoft Office suite, or OpenOffice. I don't see a problem here.

I am really focusing on the initiative being marketed as open platform in your comparison one could say the same of all users

Windows users can use Microsoft office or openoffice
Linux users can use openoffice, or koffice


It is not problem it is just annoying, being that the initial promotion was about equal features across all platforms.

OpenOffice for the Mac has three flavors: Pick your poison: the X11 version which looks terrible, NeoOffice which is slow and resource consuming or the unstable beta version of Aqua OO.o.

In other words, a nice and stable native version would have been nice.
