The weakness of all of these apps is X11. Sure, Gimp is nice, and so is OO.o, but they all need to run in X11, an ugly and very un-Mac-like environment.


For me, I only get apps from Fink if there's a Cocoa or Carbon wrapper available for them. NeoOffice is a great clone of OO.o, and you don't have to boot X11. It's still not as good as Pages or another app that runs in Aqua, but it's better than running OO.o in X11.
