Subject Re: AOO on a Mac
Date Wed, 26 Feb 2014 01:41:53 GMT
It is also important to install AOO from it's website, not through another
site.

With that said, I have used AOO on OSX Mountain Lion and recently the
upgrade to Maverick. I've not had any problems to date and share files with
other Mac and MS users  However, I've only been a mac user for a few
months, having used linux and AOO for 10+ years previously. ( Ubuntu and
most recently Linux Mint)
