IBM Lotus Symphony - Now with Mac OS X Support Available

Enter another big player into the Macintosh Word Processor arena. Right now, it's just in beta, and has limited language support, but let's wait and see.

IBM Lotus Symphony - Buzz: Lotus Symphony Release 1.2 with Mac OS X Support Available: "Lotus Symphony Release 1.2 with Mac OS X Support Available

Lotus Symphony release 1.2 is now available and includes Beta support for the Mac OS X platform in English. I know many of you have been waiting for this new platform and hope you will take the time to try it out and give us your feedback. We expect to have a Generally Available version for Mac in all the languages we support in 1Q09.

In addition to the Mac OS support, we have added some new enhancements to our Data Pilot support in our spreadsheet tool and have made the Ubuntu platform Generally Available. We've also made some performance improvements. For all the details on what's included in this release take a look at the release notes."

Howdy. Yep, I downloaded when it first became available. (Mac OS X 10.5 on MBP 15")

So far, no issues or crashes. But I haven't done any extensive formatting yet.

An innoc ent question from someone who has never tried Lotus Symphony on any platform: Why might it be better than MS word or OpenOffice? Is its feature set impressive on the IBM platform? Seriously, I just want to know.
