    Just got my fiances macbook back after a hard drive crash, reinstalling everything and adding some new stuff. I put down Office 2008 on it but also wanted to put Open Office on it, having some issues getting it to install, X11 is installed (OS X 10.5.3) but i get a message that something has timed out when I try starting it up for the first time. Then I'm basically forced to reboot to even attempt it again. Should I bother screwing with it or just download Neooffice?

    It's an Intel based MB regular but that damn program just won't run. I do have bootcamp and WIN XP SP3 on it as well with all the office stuff on that partition but I'd like to have something in addition to MS Office in OS X.

    Go for Neo Office. It's more optimized for a Mac. I like the performance better on it than OpenOffice.
