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