Kuwisdelu makes an excellent point. I work in an office, using Pages to create my reports. Saving them in .Doc format, and my email recipients don't even know I am not using Office.
NeoOffice is also a great program, if you need a standard office suite.
If you feel the need to get Microsoft Office, you won't be disappointed either. In your case, it is not necessity.
iWork 08 has a trial download for thirty-days, give it a try, and see if you like it.
NeoOffice is free, download it, and give it a try.
