Mac Aqua Port: State of the Union

Philipp Lohmann writes a status report on the Mac Aqua port:

“Roughly a year ago Sun joined the Macport community. The goal we – meaning the macporter team which Sun was now part of – set ourselves was that the Aquaport should be on par with the other platforms by the time of OOo 3.0 beta -which is now almost upon us.”

He announces the goal has largely been met, barring a few bugs. In fact, I have been testing an alpha version of the Mac Aqua port for a few weeks now and have been extremely impressed with it.

    Ben, thanks for highlighting this. I have experimented with Ooo for Mac and found it pretty impressive as well! I’m jazzed about the ability to include Quicktime videos in Impress, something that has been long in coming. It gives me hope that Ooo will eventually be a viable alternative to MS Office on the Mac side.
