    "A Required Payment is NOT a Donation"

    April 23, 2011  |   By noibs

    Version: NeoOffice 3.2

    Pros

    Slightly more stable and perhaps more Mac-like than OpenOffice/LibreOffice

    Cons

    Always 9 months to a year behind the most recent version of OpenOffice/LibreOffice

    Summary

    I've used NeoOffice, OpenOffice and LibreOffice extensively. I've donated to NeoOffice in the past. I'm now using LibreOffice exclusively. I won't even consider paying the $10 to NeoOffice unless the developers stop using the term "donation" for a required payment. I don't mind paying for products and services; however, I HATE THE OVERT DISHONESTY in calling a payment a donation. IT'S NOT. GROW UP! START TO WEAR BIG BOY PANTS.

    I've probably paid $100 in the past few months for apps on Apple App Store for Macs. That's fine. You pay and you get a product and are able to use that product on all of your Macs. That's free enterprise and it's honest. It's not a donation.

    To say I'm angry is an understatement. It's a matter of principle and I'm not going to play along.

    "I Got rid of it."

    April 20, 2011  |   By saneman

    Version: NeoOffice 3.2

    Pros

    I'll use Libre.

    Cons

    It's not Libre.

    Summary

    Here is what Richard Stallman actually says: Free software is software that users have the freedom to distribute and change. Some users may obtain copies at no charge, while others pay to obtain copies-and if the funds help support improving the software, so much the better. The important thing is that everyone who has a copy has the freedom to cooperate with others in using it.

    Updated on Apr 20, 2011

    Richard Stallman wrote the rules on how open source software should be distributed in case you were wondering why I quoted him.

    "Totally Misleading and Fraudulent"

    April 19, 2011  |   By super_dooper_dave_osbourne

    Version: NeoOffice 3.2

    Pros

    App actually is good, have used for years.

    Cons

    Lying to users, requiring payment as a 'donation'.

    Summary

    Complete scam, abandoning it and the lying desperate ways of the developers. Really sad, they are evil.

    "Illegal and unethical requirement of $10 donation"

    April 19, 2011  |   By bckn

    Version: NeoOffice 3.2

    Pros

    Open Office made Mac friendly.

    Cons

    Requiring a donation to download software is charging for it, plain and simple. The argument that NeoOffice is not a derivative work of Open Office is extremely weak, it makes use of major components. As such charging for this violates OO's LGPL.

    Summary

    I'm not going to pay for this, and I won't be recommending NeoOffice to anyone else either as I have done in the past.

    "Requires payment (fraudulently called a 'donation')"

    April 19, 2011  |   By zunipus

    Version: NeoOffice 3.2

    Pros

    NeoOffice the most Mac friendly version of OpenOffice. It is highly recommended as a free and international standard based alternative to commercial office suites.

    Cons

    Planamesa, who write NeoOffice, are required by law to provide it for FREE because it is based upon Open Source source code. By requiring a 'donation', Planamesa are breaking the law. I suggest abandoning NeoOffice until this matter is resolved.

    Summary

    Introduction:

    Please note that I am not a lawyer and my statements here are not definitive. I am, however, a long time user of Open Source software, am familiar with the various Open Source licenses, and know full well that Planamesa is in violation of the OpenOffice Open Source license by way of their requiring PAYMENT in order to download or use any version of NeoOffice version 3.2. Rather than take my word, please verify this situation for yourself and make your own conclusions. What I provide here is based upon my research and provides my concluding opinion:

    The Situation:

    I could not be more disturbed and saddened by the fact that Planamesa, who program NeoOffice, are breaking the law established by the Open Source license for Open Office. Planamesa are REQUIRING (versus asking) for a 'donation', meaning that they are actually requiring a PAYMENT (which by any definition is NOT a donation). Uou are not allowed by Planamesa to download NeoOffice version 3.2 and presumably onward without payment.

    Any Open Source application, such as OpenOffice, is required by law, in accordance with its license to developers, to provide ALL elaborations upon that code to be donated for free back into the Open Source project. NeoOffice IS OpenOffice IS free to one and all WITHOUT any donation of any kind BY LAW. That Planamesa REQUIRE a 'donation' is ILLEGAL by default. They are not allowed to do so at any time for any reason. That will not change.

    I fully support providing donations to all Open Source projects. However, no one ever has the right to REQUIRE any donation at any time for any Open Source code based software such as NeoOffice.

    If or when this legal matter is settled, please DO actually donate to Planamesa for their excellent work. But until this legal matter is settled, I personally recommend NOT acquiescing to this illegal REQUIREMENT OF PAYMENT (which by definition is NOT A DONATION!) Instead, I suggest changing over to one of the legal versions of Open Office such as that provided from OpenOffice.org or the recent branch of the project called LibreOffice, available at LibreOffice.org. I personally prefer LibreOffice.

    Hopefully this situation will be rapidly resolved and NeoOffice will again require no payment, as is required by law. Until that time, I suggest abandoning NeoOffice for the free alternatives.
