I’m also a former BSDi user.  When I started evaluating Apple hardware and the OS X operating system as a possible replacement for Suipermicro hardware and the BSD/OS operating system, I discovered NeoOffice.  It was a derivative of OpenOffice that had been modified to run as a native OS X application.  I found it to be much better than the early attempts to develop OpenOffice for OS X.

NeoOffice is available from and from Apple’s App Store.
