OpenOSX Office 2.0 adds finance software

updated 09:05 am EDT, Tue September 4, 2007

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.

    Why pay for what's free?

    All of these can be installed via darwinports. Go to http://darwinports.com/ - you can install a number of Linux titles that use X11.

    Stay away, far away.

    There is little need to PAY for the same thing you can get for free. These people are a relic of a bygone era. Yes, GNU programs can be bundled for the consumer for a fee, but why? There is little effort in getting these installed for FREE with FINK or as aquraishi said above.
