OpenOffice for Mac OS X (X11) has gone Gold Master and is available for download. This is a fully-functional, open-source office application, though it does require you to download X11. Aqua support is likely further off: check out their details on Aqua progress on their roadmap. In the meantime, the 1.1 beta promises PDF and Macromedia Flash export; DocBook, PDA office-file formats, flat XML and XHTML plus complex text layout for languages such as Thai, Hindi, Arabic, Hebrew — support Microsoft has dropped on the Mac.
