but I have noticed lately that NeoOffice seems to work more flawlessly then iWork. On some (but not all) pps files there will be errors with Keynote but when the same pps is opened with NeoOffice there are no errors. I was using numbers to sync with my Palm Centro and the chart kept getting corrupted. I switched to NeoOffice and have had no problems since. The list goes on and on - all minor but very irritating since I paid for iWork and NeoOffice is free. Anyone else having these problems??

This is weird. My experience has been quite different. I tried NeoOffice when I first got my Mac but it was really quirky and crashed on me multiple times. So I used the trial version of iWork'08 and had no difficulties with it. So I bought it and have been very satisfied ever since.

I guess it really is a personal choice. I love iWork08! I use it daily and I keep running into new features. This morning, at the local MUG meeting, the program is on Pages so I'm looking forward to it!

Was it personal choice or because of problems? I love the way iWork looks but this latest has possibly caused me to move back to NeoOffice.
