Another Free Office Suite of Products

I haven't looked at this new free office suite called IBM Lotus Symphony; but it looks like it could be pretty good. It appears to be an open suite of products (very universal) and they claim:
"With Lotus Symphony, you can import, edit and save a variety of file formats including Microsoft Office files. You can even export your documents to Adobe® Portable Document Format (PDF). The tools work with computers running both Microsoft Windows and Linux- environments, with support for Apple Macintosh planned for the future."
The suite consists of three products:
  1. Lotus Symphony Documents (replacement for Word)
  2. Lotus Symphony Presentations (replacement for PowerPoint)
  3. Lotus Symphony Spreadsheets (replacement for Excel)
As a former Lotus 1-2-3 user, I'm very interested in these and will have to check them out the first opportunity I get. If anyone has tried them, please comment!
