OpenOSX Office 2.0 debut
OpenOSX has released v2.0 of OpenOSX Office, a Mac OS X equivalent of the GNOME Office suite for Linux systems. All of GNOME Office's applications are bundled together, among them AbiWord, the Gnumeric spreadsheet, and the Gimp image processor. The second edition is native to both Intel and PowerPC Macs, but most importantly introduces Gnucash, a financial program that tracks accouns, stocks, incomes and expenses. SodiPodi, meanwhile, hs been replaced with the Inkscape vector graphics software. Existing programs have all had their versions updated to the latest available, with a particular emphasis on Gnumeric, which now has database support. Prices for Office start at $30, and Mac OS X 10.4 with X11 is required.
