I have Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac on my MacBook. It doesn’t read or write Microsoft Office 2007’s native OOXML files. Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac won’t be out until January 2008. It won’t support Office macros. I don’t use Entourage. So, that means all I really use is Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
Apple iWork ‘08 is available now and can read/write Office 2007 files. It has a word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation app. It costs $79. I don’t think Office for Mac 2008 for Mac will be $79 (will it come in a bazillion versions like Office for Windows?). I’ve never used iWork but will guess it doesn’t support macros (big deal since Office won’t either).
Seems like a good time for me to switch to iWorks. What about other current Office 2004 users? Will you wait until January to upgrade to 2008 or switch to iWorks ‘08 now?
