        My experience has been that NeoOffice does not print well. There are kerning problems, letters ran together, etc. RLM

          Woops. AbiWord is the program that has the problems with printing, not NeoOffice. RLM

              <http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/download.php> has all the download mirrors (which are worldwide, but rotated). www.neooffice.org doesn't have much content on it these days, so it's always the last to get updated, alas. <http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/> and <http://neowiki.sixthcrusade.com/index.php/NeoOffice_Release_Notes> will have more up-to-date info (the latter keeping you apprised of new patches as well).
