ThinkFree has definitely gotten faster especially in subsequent starts, but the initial load is still extremely long.

When compared to NeoOffice, the two are much the same. Unfortunately, ThinkFree doesn't allow you to customize toolbars; often desired to maximize screen space on laptops. Both suites also are missing many keystroke shortcuts, often critical to workflow (e.g. - row placement in Excel via Shift key).

Finally, the others are right. While I appreciate the ThinkFree effort, why pay $50 when NeoOffice offers as much if not more for free? However, a great alternative is their ThinkFree Online. It's free and offers a well produced web suite with ample storage space.

"Think" seems to be the only "free" thing that comes with ThinkFree Office...
Go NeoOffice (www.planamesa.com/neojava) instead.

Think Free seems to be ok when starting a document from scratch, but like the other reviewer said, conversion is all off. I use Microsloth Office for a few things, but mainly for labels and envelopes, and they've been all wrong almost every time. Instead of the normal 1 sheet for a set of Avery address labels, it goes to 2.

I'd also like to get away from MS, but...

Why wait for koffice when NeoOffice and OpenOfficeOrg are already here for Mac OS X, and free?

Can't you get koffice through Macports already?

Not so native, but kde has a fairly pleasant ui.

On my iMac G5 1.8 this thing is as slow as a pig! Too slow to work with IMHO. Formating conversion is not accurate; it changed a 61 page document into 88 pages. Also it moved bullets into a right justified alignment. I'm disappointed. I'd love to switch from MS but this isn't it unfortunately.

Could you add some more numbers to your version number. I think there is too few....

Not bad...not bad at all. It's a bit slow but on a Mac Mini everything seems a bit slow. That said, the features match up pretty good and the compatibility to MS Office is dead on. It doesn't contain all the features of Word but those omitted are often neglected as bloatware anyway. 90% of most users will find Word and Excel features within ThinkFree Office. Show does an okay job of PowerPoint 2004, although it does not contain some of the more recent image & transition enhancements; that's to be expected considering that even the Windows PowerPoint does not contain these.

The lack of customization for the Toolbars while expected of a cross-platform Java-based program is still a disappointment. It does not let you combine separate bars onto one line which is necessary for mobile users with wider than higher screen space. As I said, speed is a bit slow but really only in startup; an option allows you to reserve the launch memory for quicker future access if you're willing to part with it. Otherwise, actual usage is steady. Once again, Show is where I saw the slowest responses; especially concerning Slideshow presentations. Transitions tax the CPU heavily.

That said, at $50/seat, it's a great alternative to Office; it even breaks even with the MS Office Student/Teacher version. If Apple does not come out with its version of Excel for iWork soon, I may jump in to ThinkFree Office.

It would be nice for MacWorld or MacAddict to do a serious, side-by-side review of this, OpenOfficeOrg, and NeoOffice/J - the pros and cons in a table.
