    i like it better than iwork too, but the fact that i have to do each update individually is a pain in the ass.

    that would be like apple making you install 10.5.1
    10.5.2
    10.5.3
    10.5.4
    10.5.5

    all individually :ugh:

    office is a huge pile of shit. word seems to take up way more memory than all of the iwork apps running at once.

    I fucking hate office. Opening Excel or Word takes at least 10x as long as it does for Vista. Next reinstall I'll be going back to OO.

    office 08 fucking sucks. piece of shit is slow as hell and has less functionality than previous versions. in the time it takes to load the piece of shit, you could launch a windows virtual machine and open up office there.

    When you say it has less functionality, what do you mean? I don't use Word, or Office for that matter, that much if at all.

    office 2008 killed vba support. for me, excel suffers the most. no solver, no statistical support, a lot of add-ins don't work.

    After switching from the pc version of office 08 or 07 whatever is the newest the Mac version sucks. It takes forever to load and the interface is horrible.
