I installed NeoOffice/J on my iBook today. In the words of its developers:

... NeoOffice the main development project for making to run natively on MacOS X. It is a free software port of to the MacOS X platform.

In doing so, they are using Carbon and Java. The end result is that OO.o winds up fitting in with the rest of OS-X's GUI and it should run faster, since you don't need the overhead of X11. So far I've only used it a little bit, to create an invoice for a client and then export it to a PDF. We'll see how it does compared with the X11-based Mac port of OO.o.
