Hello I'm new to the forum and will be purchasing a new imac soon. I come from a Linux background, having ditched windows many years ago.

My question is that at present I use Open Office and save all my files in the ODF format (.odt, .ods etc) does iworks08 support this format?

I know I can use Neo office or indeed Open Office but i thought I'd go for the full mac experience if possible.

many thanks in advance

QUOTE Thanks

I just tested it out, and it looks like Pages can not read the .odt file format. However it can read .doc files and .docx files

thanks for that. I've a lot of docs and spreadsheets in this format so I'll probably give Iworks a miss. It looks like it will be Neooffice ( or Open Office aqua - when it becomes a tad more stable).

QUOTE Thanks
