Yes, it is. It's bloated with so many menus and buttons and half-working features and crap that it's not worth the money to buy.

At school, Office for Mac memory leaks so badly I have to save my work and log out of my account every few minutes so it doesn't crash and lose everything. Best word processor available? I think not.

I can see your point with Excel, but there's Keynote 2 (which is MUCH better than PowerPoint. PowerPoint presentations look fugly and bland, especially the animations and clip art.) and OS X already has an excellent set of PIM programs (Mail+iCal+Address Book) that make Entourage look like a piece of crapola, and not worth the $149.

Plus, is it really necessary to pay $300+ for Office if you aren't a student or teacher? No. iWork is affordable for everyone, and it gets the job done nicely.
