Performance sucks in Tiger.. anyone else notice this?
no, because I'm on leopard.
although my problem is by having both versions installed, it causes a lot of problems.
It takes like 30 seconds to load up on my 8-core Mac pro with 5gb of ram immediately after starting up my computer
Yeah it's crap.
the loss of features is a bunch of crap too.
Takes 1 minute plus on my MBP..
And I'm beyond pissed that it doesn't include visio and infopath.
Fuck microsoft. Stupid mf'ers.
So glad I got over-excited and uninstalled NeoOffice. Back to NeoOffice I go.
nope, cuz i use iwork.
its worse than 04 and its slowness due to not being universal. i cant believe how horrible it is. hell it doesnt even seem like anything changed really, other than its slower.
I figured 08 would be UB.. what gives?
it is. just still really slow. it makes me confused that when using mac version of office it takes upto 2-3min sometimes to open a powerpoint project, but booted into windows using office 2007 it opens instantly. wtf gives.
Maybe they should get Aspyre or Blizzard to handle the translation into mac language.
I guess I'll stay to iWork
its slower than i expected, you would think 4 years of development would yield some improved load times but nop
It's slower than I would've thought, after they were hyping up going UB, but I still use it because I've used it for years and years.
pages is >>>>>>>>>>> word
keynote is >>>>>>>>> pp
excel is >> numbers currently lot of formatting conflicts when you open an excel spreadsheet in numbers. naturally, i use excel the most
I'm still pissed that InfoPath and Visio isn't included..
more like microsoft never bothering to do an office for mac properly.
Mine loads up in about 15 seconds. The thing that eats my ass is that there is a lag when I type. I type over 120 WPM and it can not keep up. My laptop is fast as shit too, its irritating, and xeon I feel your pain.
I haven't even gotten that far yet.. but I type over 120 as well.
Yea, it pisses me off that it doesn't have Visio in it. Now I have to go use school computers to use it
how's iwork with citations and chicago style?
I'll reply though, even though Word 08 is slow as fuck, it still has wayyy more features that I use than pages. The citation thing is sick in itself, also I find that I like the grammar functions better too.
Word loads in about 5 seconds for me
