-'''N.B.''' ''This page compares NeoOffice 2.0 (currently the Aqua Beta release) to OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 and Microsoft Office 2004. To see the version of this page comparing NeoOffice 1.2.2 with then-current versions of OpenOffice.org (X11) and Microsoft Office 2004, see [[NeoOffice 1.2 Feature Comparison]].'' 
-The advantages of NeoOffice over other office suites, particularly Microsoft's, are legion. Most importantly, NeoOffice is free and open source software relieving you of costly licensing fees. 
- 
-There is a strong community support forum that is also frequented by the developers at http://www.trinity.org/ 
- 
-=== NeoOffice vs. Microsoft Office === 
- 
-Apart from these benefits, NeoOffice 2.0 has features that outshine Microsoft Office:

Office 2004 is available in English (all versions of Office 2004), and in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Swedish (for some versions of Office 2004; must be ordered separately) [http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2004/Jan04/01-06Office2004IntentPR.asp].</td></tr>

-<tr><td colspan="3">*** Because OpenOffice.org includes support for languages and scripts which do not have keyboard layouts in Mac OS X, and because Mac OS X includes system-level Unicode support for many of these languages even though Apple does not ship fonts or keyboards, it is very likely that NeoOffice will support text entry (and perhaps sorting) in the language/script if one installs third-party Unicode fonts and keyboard layouts. See Tom Gewecke's [http://homepage.mac.com/thgewecke/mlingos9.html Your Multilingual Mac] for more resources. For instance, there is a report that NeoOffice handles [http://trinity.neooffice.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1035&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= Khmer] very well, and there has even been a [http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=20144&highlight=NeoOffice report] of using NeoOffice with characters in Unicode Planes 1 and 2.</td></tr>

-=== NeoOffice vs. OpenOffice.org for Macintosh (X11) === 
- 
-NeoOffice is far more integrated with OS X than the Mac releases of OpenOffice.org. Rather than relying on X11, NeoOffice uses Java and Cocoa to bridge the gap between the OpenOffice.org interface code and Apple's OS X.

-=== Still To Do === 
- 
-In all fairness, NeoOffice is not perfect. No software is. Along with relatively large RAM requirements (minimum 384 MB, 512 MB or more recommended), there is always room for improvement. NeoOffice can (and will) get better. Take a look at the following comparison:

-=== Other Comparisons === 
- 
-Additional feature comparisons between selected office suites and word processors are available at [http://www.redlers.com/mellelcompetitive.html Mellel: Competitive Comparison] (redlers.com; compares Mellel with Microsoft™ Office, OpenOffice.org 1.1.x, and Nisus Writer Express, but not NeoOffice®) and [http://apfelwiki.de/wiki/Tests/WordAlternativenTest Word-Alternativen: Der Test] (apfelwiki.de; compares AbiWord 2.2.x, Mellel 2.0.x, NeoOffice® 1.2.2, Nisus Writer Express 2.7, and Apple's Pages 2.0.x [de]). 
- 
-===Supported File Formats=== 
- 
-NeoOffice can read and write a large variety of file formats, both current and legacy. Current and recent Microsoft Office file formats are just some of the import and export possibilities; for a more complete listing, see the [[NeoOffice File Formats]] matrix.
