Switching to Mac

Very excited with my new MacBook Pro.

However, two steps forward one step back: I have a Rails application that reads MS Excel files via win32ole Ruby library. In Mac OS X that does not work and I now have effectively no way to run the application on my Mac until completely re-coding the part that deals with Excel! What a disaster.

Have found info suggesting the use of OpenOffice which should work on both OS X and Windows but that still is going to require coding time. *sigh*
