I would try 3.5.5 for your MacOSX -PPC system. It may surprise you on
how well it works. I do not have a Mac, but I use it for several
Windows systems and for my main systems that are Ubuntu based systems.
The laptop isn't for me. It was given to me at my last Mac User Group
meeting, and has OS X Leopard installed. I'll be donating it to a local
social agency to be given away to someone who needs a computer but can't
Apple doesn't include things similar to Wordpad and the like with their OS.
So I'm collecting some software that can be installed by the new owner.
I would install it if this was a Windows machine, but OS X requires
the new owner to create the equivalent of an Administrator account with
name and password right out of the box. The Leopard install is brand
new, so there's no way I can install the software as I don't know what
the eventual username and password will be.
Technically, that name and password can be changed at a later date, but
apparently that is something that often causes problems in OS X, so I'm
going to avoid it.
Let us know how it works out for you. We are looking for more Mac
users, as well as Windows ones. LO being the default Office package for
most Linux distros tends to help with that market.
If I should get any feedback from the eventual owners, I'll post it.
But, don't hold your breath. LOL
Now we need to build up the numbers in the Windows and Mac office
market. LO does have the advantage of more [so I have heard] language
support than MSO does, and you do not need to buy a new version to get
these 100+ supported languages for the menu and help systems.
I think my time with LO is about to expire. I've filed two bugs which
no one seems interested in even dealing with. They still exist. And
there are others that I've not double checked on for 3.5.x. I've posted
about this "non-attentiveness" before, but if fixing the bugs that are
important to me isn't important to the developers, I'm not interested in
lending any assistance. It's a two way street, and I'm not the only one
to post about bugs not being fixed prior to adding new features. I'll
find a program that doesn't cause me problems. I already know which
program I'll check out first, but will wait until the newest version is
out this fall.
And is won't be MSO. <grin> If Corel hadn't dropped Mac support with
WordPerfect, I'd fork over the money for it. I used to use it, thought
it was far superior to MSO.
I have Apple's iWork 09 package, which I consider to be Apple's
equivalent to MS Works. But, there's no database component. I may go
back and work some more with Pages (the word processor) and see if I can
get used to it.
Mac OS X 10.6.8
