It's a Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac world

Thanks to all who have helped with previous issues, which I posted on:

Remote Desktop for Mac OS X

What is a good remote desktop utility for Mac OS X?

Free or Open-Source Integrated Development Environment for Mac

2. I keep hearing about a free Mac IDE for Java and Objective C. What is it, and is it as good as Eclipse for MacOS? How about the compiler? Is its code performance comparable to that of g++?

Office Software for Mac OS Panther, Tiger

3. What office software do you use under Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4, especially for databases and word processing? If it's not Office v.X or Office Mac 2004, what is preferable about what you use?

1. There's a utility out there (not free) called Apple Remote Desktop that works pretty well. Also, Microsoft puts out a Remote Desktop utility to remote into Windows machines. I use it at work all the time.

2. I have no idea.

3. For our mac machines (all 6 of them?) we use OSX 10.3, and for word processing on these machines we've got your standard textedit, as well as Office 2004. Or at least on this machine. Most of our Mac's aren't used for word processing, but instead for graphics creation and manipulation so we can keep track of the Adobe licenses we have/need.

Apple Remote Desktop, MS Remote Desktop for Mac, and Office
Thanks for your reply!

1. I looked up Apple Remote Desktop 3, and it looks as if it implements Mac-to-Mac RD pretty well. Windows RD for Mac does Mac-to-Windows adequately, I'm sure. However, I'm looking for a Windows-to-Mac utility that would let me operate my home iMac and G4 from another system (where all the PCs I have besides a dual G4 called Varda are WinXP or Win2K systems). Any ideas?

2. nikolasco says it's XCode, which I will check out.

3. NeoOffice is what I was looking for. Office 2004 is a little too resource-intensive for Este (a Bondi Blue Rev. 8 iMac, G3-333).

VNC, XCode, and NeoOffice
Thanks! This pretty much answers all of my questions.

1. ARD: check (and I'll look into the VNC client interfaces); TSC for Mac: check; any idea whether there is a Mac RD client for Windows?

I'm fine with using everything in single-user mode.

2. XCode is what I was looking for. I probably will stick with Eclipse, unless it's exceedingly memory-intensive.

4. NeoOffice and postgresql: perfect.

Thanks again!

OS X VNC (server) and VNC for Windows (client)
I'm trying this potential solution (involving the open-source system OS X VNC and this VNC client for Windows) right now.

3. I like Nisus Writer Express.

Hrm... I didn't really answer your question... It seems jam-packed with features and does everything I could want it to do. I like it better than Office, which I also have.

3. Appleworks is a solid piece of software that's never given me a moment's grief. Apart from not being a RAM hog it has an almost endless supply of templates and graphics available for download from inside the program. I keep Office X on at least one computer around here but I do my best to avoid using it.
