Oh, don't get me wrong, the whole thing is a compilation of input from tons of guys on the board... I'm just the one who fat fingered it all in... along with some personal observations from my first build..

Is there a copy of the BOM for the Express in plain text format? I can't read the 'xls' format with any of my software. I'm on a Mac that's set mainly for 3D work. No MSOffice or anything like that.

It's a Microsoft Excel document, which is available for the Mac.

If you email me, I can send you a PDF version...

You can use Open Office (free) to open all the Office applications, including Excel.

Geared originally towards PC crowd: http://www.openoffice.org/

However, a group is doing a ported version (Unix) to Mac:

Er.. originally geared towards to linux/unix community who had no way to run Microsoft Office products (unless you were brave enough to use Wine) as well as open source proponents who didn't want to pay for Microsoft products. Done largely in something very portable (java I think). True though that the Mac version was a late-comer to the party.

Nit-picking aside, it does a pretty solid job. Also available (at least for windows) are Abiword for Word docs and Gnumeric for excel.

** Off-Topic **

If only they'd split MS Applications from MS Operating Systems... sigh...

Then we'd have MS Office for Linux, BSD, Mac, Solaris, etc...

To a limited extent they have done that. At school about half the computers are macs and all have word, excel and powerpoint installed. I know for a while there they even had a mac version of Internet Explorer. Times they are a changin.

Is it my eyes, that I couldn't find any pot in the BOM?
Or are they really missing there?
