Interesting.  It looks like SoftMaker Office is in the ports tree, at:


I'll have to consider whether it's worth investigating as an alternative
to OO.o for my own purposes.  I'd rather not spend money on something

my better judgment and preferences, but it might be worth a few dollars
to avoid the annoyance of dealing with OO.o on the rare occasion that I
do need something MS Office compatible.
