Kenneth - I’m a Mac user of 2 weeks’ vintage.  Check out Scrivener:  http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.htm
Seems a great organizing/writing tool.

I’ve not seen Opal, but a version of OmniOutliner was residing on my new MacBook..  They’ll try and get you to upgrade for $$$$, so you may want to switch over to Opal if Mr. Dunham can cut you a discount (I might take him up on such an offer myself!).

I’ve used AbiWord and OpenOffice on Windows.  Unless your writing needs are complex, AbiWord for OS X should be fine.  If you need an office suite, try NeoOffice (an OS X specific port of Open Office).  If you still need Microsoft,  wait until the end of the year when the new version of Office for Mac is released.

Anyway, enjoy your Mac….I am!
