New MBP: Can't download OpenOffice!

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I'm hoping to "cut the cord" from MS! Been learning and using OOo for quite awhile now on the ol' PC. Just got my MBP and lovin' it! I've been trying over the past few days to download OOo. Constantly redirected to failure-of-server message. Is this, something I'm doing wrong? (I tried on, Safari, Firefox, and Opera!) Connection is wireless, Covad DSL through Linksys router; system is MBP with latest Leopard...)

    Just tried it and am getting"The download you have chosen is not available" message

    Seems the problem is on their end not yours

    I would try NeoOffice instead. Open Office has to use X11 and I've found it slower. I don't know if it's changed but it never used to be able to use the Mac fonts either, only the ones supplied with Open Office.
