I find Windows almost impossible to use, I'm afraid. It's entirely counterintuitive. The problem that Windows users seem to have with the Mac is that they expect complexity where they get simplicity. If you don't know where something is, search for it, command-F in 10.2, I think. If something is an application would one not expect to find it . . . wait for it . . . in the Applications folder? or its subfolders, like Utilities? It ain't so hard.

I finally got OpenOffice 1.1.2 installed (I think), but it still will not run. At the VERY end of the installation, it had a dialog box that suggested if it would not start, type the following lines into Terminal:
setenv DISPLAY localhost:0 setenv DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH/Applications/OpenOffice.org1.1.2/program:/Applications/OpenOffice.org1.1.2/program/filter cd /Applications/OpenOffice.org1.1.2/program sh soffice
I did that, but got an error "Set display environment variable, use -display option or check permissions of your X-Server (See 'man x' resp. 'man xhost' for details)"
I tried using "setenv -DISPLAY localhost:0", but got the same error. I also tried to check 'man x' and 'man xhost' but got "No manual entry for x" and "No manual entry for xhost"
