Mr. Anderson's Word Processor

A fork of OpenOffice specifically for Mac OS X called "NeoOffice/J" just released a 1.1 beta. I haven't tried it yet, though I'll probably check it out. I wouldn't normally bother you, dear readers, with such a trifle, but there was such a funny comment on the Slashdot story about the release that I couldn't resist.
We've had our eye on you for some time now. It seems that you've been living two lives. In one life, you're OpenOffice, an open source multi-platform office productivity suite. The other life is lived in computers, where you go by the hacker alias NeoOffice/J that has been engineered to run natively on Mac OS X. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not.
