I have some old .odt files that I need to update and I was wondering if it's worth installing the latest and greatest OpenOffice, née "aqua"...

I haven't yet made the switch to OO 3, but NeoOffice provides a nice Aqua GUI on top of OO 2 and handles ODF just fine.

I have been using the OO version where you do not need XTerm and I like it a lot. All the problems I used to have are way gone. I have never had an issue where it stops working/freezes, or unexplained quiting.

Thanks y'all. Just to update a bit, I did go ahead and use OO for some very basic word processing/formatting and have generally enjoyed the experienece. It's a nice change from MS Word in that it feels like you're not quite as much a victim of the unwanted "help" offered at every turn. Just one crash, but the document was recovered sucessfully.
 
please buy my thing and then I'll have more money:
