Foire Aux Questions

Qu'est-ce que NeoOffice ?

NeoOffice est une suite bureautique pour Mac qui est basé sur la suite bureautique OpenOffice. Avec NeoOffice, vous pouvez visualiser, modifier et enregistrer des documents OpenOffice et des documents LibreOffice.

Deux ingénieurs ont créé NeoOffice en 2003 quand ils ont fait OpenOffice fonctionner en mode natif sur OS X pour la première fois. Depuis lors, les ingénieurs de NeoOffice ont continuellement ajouté des améliorations à NeoOffice que vous ne trouverez pas dans OpenOffice ou LibreOffice.

J'ai un problème. Comment puis-je trouver une réponse ?

Si vous rencontrez un problème, une liste d'étapes pour trouver la solution le plus rapidement possible est disponible sur la page Support de NeoOffice.

Is my payment data private?

We do not sell or share your e-mail address or any of your payment data.

If you make a payment using the Mac App Store, we do not store any payment data. Apple does not allow us access to any Mac App Store user payment data so we neither see nor store any Mac App Store private user payment.

If you make a payment using PayPal, we only store the payment's e-mail address, amount, and date. PayPal does not allow us access to any other data that you have given them so we neither see nor store any private PayPal user payment data such as credit card or bank account numbers.

Puis-je copier NeoOffice ?

Oui. Puisque NeoOffice est distribué sous la licence GNU GPL, vous pouvez le copier autant que vous voulez et le donner à qui vous voulez. Mais si vous commercialisez vos propres compilations de NeoOffice, vous devez vous conformer aux distribution de CD et d'utilisation de la Marque NeoOffice.

NeoOffice is open source software. Aren't NeoOffice downloads required to be free?

No. Open source applies to the type of license used for the software's source code and NeoOffice's source code uses the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Selling download services for pre-built binaries is not a violation of the GPL. Apparently this misunderstanding of the GPL is so common GNU - the organization that wrote the GPL - clearly states that there is no such requirement in their GPL FAQ.

The GPL does require that anyone can access, modify, and redistribute source code and so, to ensure compliance with the GPL's source code requirements, we have always provided detailed instructions for accessing and building the NeoOffice source code are on the NeoOffice Build Instructions page.

The cost and time spent on NeoOffice is very large for the NeoOffice engineers that have created all of the improvements in NeoOffice that are not in OpenOffice or LibreOffice. While many free software products such as Firefox and Google Docs are funded by huge payments from large corporations, NeoOffice has no corporate sponsors. Without any corporate sponsors, the NeoOffice engineers must rely exclusively on payments from our users to continue implementing the latest Mac features in NeoOffice.

Where can I get the NeoOffice source code?

Instructions for accessing and building the NeoOffice source code are on the NeoOffice Build Instructions page.

Noter que si vous modifiez une quelconque partie du code, vous devez diffuser vos modifications sous la licence GPL. En d'autres termes, vous ne pouvez pas faire de modifications propriétaires à NeoOffice et nous appliquerons fermement les termes de la GPL contre quiconque ne diffuserait pas ses modifications sous la GPL.

Pourquoi NeoOffice est-il séparé de OpenOffice et LibreOffice ?

The primary reason that we stay separate is that we believe that we have produced a product that is more stable and more secure on Mac than either OpenOffice or LibreOffice.

Developing and maintaining the NeoOffice code requires a massive amount of our time. Since neither OpenOffice nor LibreOffice have ever offered to fund our work, working within the OpenOffice or LibreOffice projects is not a feasible option for us.

So instead, many years ago we took the risk of funding our work solely through payments from our users. While payments from our users have not always fully funded our work, so far payments from our users have provided us with enough funding to ensure that at least one engineer is devoting all of their time to the NeoOffice project.
