NeoOffice is great. OpenOffice ported for Mac.

You could use Google Documents. Its free, and online.

Google Documents is free, online, collaborative.

Buzzword is Adobe’s version as well. Free online collaborative. is another site offering a free online text editor too.

I never tried NeoOffice. Thanks for that suggestion @lefteh.

Do you need this software for the long-term? Apple’s iWork 08 is available as a fully-functional 30 day trial, and – like most apple stuff – is very easy/intuitive to use. If you only need this software for a one-off job, you could have your work done well within the free trial period ;)

You can get it at

Try open office, you can find it at I think it’ll require you to install X11 as well.
