"A worthy alternative to MS Office"5.0 starson by spinoza2
Pros: Intuitive, easy to learn, excellent handling of graphics
Cons: Weak support for Website designers, no html support
Summary: I switched to iWork from Mac Office some three years ago, and once I realized there would be no problems sharing documents with MS Office users I have never looked back. I liked MS Office, but it was unnecessarily complex where it didn't need to be, and it was at times buggy. iWork is very stable (?It just works?) and refreshingly intuitive. I quickly learn to carry out complex formatting and document creation tasks in a refreshingly easy manner. Keynote is a lot of fun to use, and is at least as powerful as Powerpoint, if not more so because of the Mac's unexcelled graphics abilities.
For those still concerned about letting go of Office, I can without hesitation recommend taking the step both in terms of productivity improvements and because of the cheaper costs in keeping up with new versions.
