Open Office 2.0 came out today and it requires X11. Does anyone have tips on installing and configuring X11? I'm not really sure what it does or how to use it.

X11 is a windowing system with a standard protocol and toolkit for building graphical user interfaces.

More info on the Apple X11 implementation:

Yep. Sorry, should have mentioned that.
BTW...Aquaman, have you tried NeoOffice/J? It does not require X11.

The NeoOffice doesn't support OpenDocument though, does it? Data portability to other operating systems is very important to me these days, I'd like to stick to an open format. Does anyone know of the progress of getting OpenOffice to run natively in OS X?

I hope soon. The goal is early 2006.
