Apple Hot Downloads: X11 Public Beta 3

Head on out there and start downloading.

I just started using the Open Office Final Public Beta on OS X (works on Windows, tool you’ll hate it if you’ve spent any time with Office, but it is free and lets you remove one more piece of pirated MS software off your Windows machine). It works great with Apple’s X11, although what I did end up doing is typing the whole string of commands into the X11 shortcuts menu.

I think one of the main things that X11 needs is a progress indicator somewhere – it takes 15 - 30sec for the splash screen of OOO to come up, and before that time, there is no way of knowing if something is actually launching in the background.
