    I am also using open office 3 at office in Mac Pro. It is good. But when I open presentation files in MS office, the settings get changed itself. Also I feel difficult to arrange text boxes and pictures in grid in open office presentation files. You know in most of the places you have to use MS office for the presentations.

    I use iWork and it's doing great. It reads and writes MSOffice files without a hiccup so no problem integrating with a Windows network. Plus it's a lot cheaper than MSOffice.

    Re: MS Office Mac 2008

    I use office 2008 for mac, iWork 08 and NeoOffice (open office for mac). They all have there advantages, office 2008 for mac has many fetures to customise your document/spreadsheet ect however you want it, iWork 08is simple and fast ( my personal favorite), and Neo Office is a good all rounder.

    I use iWork whenever i can as i jsut love how simple it is and how easy i can make a professional looking document, but when i realy need to get things exactly how i want them i use MS office but as i learn iWork i am useing MS office less and less.Neo Office is jsut there form before i got iWork, and errr well started to use MS office .

    In some reviews, they mentioned that iWork lacks features for scientific works in spreadsheet.

    Yeah, if you need spreadsheets than you're better off with Office. Presentations on the other hand, iWork kills.

    It's bloated and if you attempt to remove the extra language localizations, the updater will fail.
