Has anyone used it yet, and should I get it?

Are we talking the .mac? I got it just to exchange files and have a little site. I haven't done much with it yet. A good friend of mine uses it extensively on the road to keep all his contacts up to date.

Here is the download page to check out;

no, pages is Apple's new answer to MS Word. It's available in iWork with Keynote.

I'm passing on it for now, as I don't need Keynote and already have MS Word. But I don't really know if it's worth it or not for someone who really needs a great word processing app.

Whatever you can do to get Microsoft off you computer, the better.


looks a lot more simple/user-friendly too, which I like:

I cannot explain how much I hate Microsoft word. Why Adobe doesn't release a stellar word processing application that interfaces seamlessly with the whole CS line, I don't know...
HEY! Who forgot they bag?

I've always been using claris/appleworks, haven't used word since 96.

I'm wondering if its really worth the upgrade from AppleWorks, I mean, I only process words ocasionaly. Though I usually like stuff that hasn't been processed, I like pure, raw words. And I like them in Ariel, not Helvitica.

If I went out and bought page, would I be real pissed of and feel stupid, or is the x-citement about buying new software just for the fun of it a feeeling I should listen to, because this time its on to something?

well, if they're going to go that far, might as well use a page layout program: InDesign. No professionals using CS and high-end apps usually need a word-processor that does powerful things, they have InDesign/Quark for that.

I concur though. MS Word is the devil in many ways.

if you switch from word, this little guy will track you down and kill you in your sleep.

Holy shit! He's on my desk right now. And he's brought some friends!

Is it because I bought a powerbook?
