XML files on a Mac!
Macs took a huge hit when Microsoft released Office 2007 for Windows that saves in XML format but announced Mac would have to wait until Fall. We are basically in this transition period, we have no Universal Binary (Intel compatible) version of Office for Mac and it also doesn't support the new file format. The Intel issue is the same since Intel Macs were released and it's a pain but it's not the end of the world. The XML file format is a big problem however. More and more Windows users are moving to the more open XML. Thanks to open source programs, however, Macs can now operate a Universal XML compatible version of Office now for free. The solution is NeoOffice. I tried the application for a while and it works remarkably well and it doesn't even needs X11 (Open Office requires X11). This proves that the open source community has a better access to the required resources to update a software more quickly to support new technologies! You can download Neo Office here from MacUpdate!
