They have a version > for OS X, last I checked. It's not available yet (the native port, AFAIK), and I don't believe MacOS 10.1.5 will be supported. Apparently Apple has made widespread changes since 10.1.x. See <http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/index.html>. As of March, they were supposedly finalizing the installer, no news since. The only one available now, requires X11 -- so one might as well run Debian or Darwin. Unfortunately, Darwin is too geekish for my brother. He's a simple kinda guy, in terms of computer needs. We tried using the Fink release, it was an older release, and wasn't quite up to snuff. -- Steve +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Saturday Aug 21 2004 10:06:02 AM EDT +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Your wise men don't know how it feels To be thick as a brick. -- Jethro Tull, "Thick As A Brick"
