I am on a Mac and I have used OpenOffice as well as the NeoOffice  
port.  Not bad.  However, I decided to just go full Apple and buy  
iWork.  Great tools.  Although depending on what I am doing I also  
just use Google Docs for collaborative work, and sometimes I use  
NeoOffice for the occasional compatibility task.  It's all about your  
needs and tolerances.
