"Unlike Open Office, it can open files not in English"

May 27, 2011  |  By Taegugki

 |  Version: NeoOffice 3.2p2

Pros

Free, so I don't have to give Microsoft another dime, what more can I say?

Cons

Occasional crashes.

Summary

I have the iWorks suite, but it doesn't translate well to my colleagues who have MS Office, so this is a great alternative and as a person who only uses simple Excel functions and super simple formulas, I don't justify paying hundreds of dollars for what I would use Office for. I tried Open Office & even Libre Office, and living in Korea, these apps couldn't open files that were named in Korean, Neo Office did, so just for that fact I give it 4 stars!

"Runs well on my iMac (2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo)"

May 22, 2011  |  By Sibo10

 |  Version: NeoOffice 3.2p2

Pros

Cheap, solid office suite.

Cons

Gallery is a bit amaturish.

Summary

Has basically everything I need in an Office program. At a donation cost of Euro 7,00, who can really complain. And refusing to pay, then spending hours doing a DIY update...?
After a hiccup (only 3 in three years) doccument recovery worked every time.
Patches install without any problems.

"Update does not work on v3.1.x, must DIY compile v3.2"

May 10, 2011  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: NeoOffice 3.2p2

Pros

An updater you don't have to compile yourself

Cons

You have to DIY compile v3.2 (which takes MANY HOURS) before you can apply the update.

Summary

As of NeoOffice v3.2, no compiled application is provided from Planamesa unless you pay a MANDITORY "donation". Yes, that is a contradiction in terms. Therefore, you have to DIY compile v3.2 first, which takes MANY HOURS and about 20 GB of disk space, then you can apply the update. You might want to consider dumping NeoOffice and moving over to either OpenOffice.org or LibreOffice (which continues to be buggy ATM).

What's new in version 3.2p2
After we released NeoOffice 3.2 Patch 1 two weeks ago, Apple released a new developer preview of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. We did some testing of NeoOffice on this latest Lion developer preview release and found a bug in the native Open and Save dialogs. The bug that we found causes the file list in both dialogs to flicker and makes it difficult to read the file list. To ensure that NeoOffice 3.2 works smoothly on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion whenever it is released by Apple, we have fixed this bug and have released NeoOffice 3.2 Patch 2. This bug also occurs in NeoOffice 3.1.2 so we have released NeoOffice 3.1.2 Patch 9 with the same fix.
