    daemon tools & iWork
    hello everyone I am thinking of making the big step to apple but trying to find that programs that I will need to have when I get my new apple so that I wont go crazy lol

    I use daemon tools on my pc to play the DVDs I have as in "own" saved on a sever so we can watch them anywhere in the house is there any tools like that I can get with a apple pc, basically to mount a DVD image

    also on iWork 08 I see if you miss spell a word it underlines it in red, is there a spell check that will tell u what to change it to?

    thanks I know there two totally different things to ask in the same post but any help would be great thx!!!

    Macs mount disk images with the OS if they end in .dmg. If you are talking about a Video_TS folder, Mac's built-in DVD Player will allow you to open it from a remote location via the 'File' menu.

    Also on iWork 08 I see if you miss spell a word it underlines it in red, is there a spell check that will tell u what to change it to?
    When you right-click (with a mouse) or Command-Click or however you manage it, the pop-up menu will have choices for the spelling that you may have meant, just like a standard Windows-based MS Word app.

    In iWork 08 it's Edit, Spelling or Apple-Shift-Colon. That will bring up the spell check window and suggest the word.

    Edit to my above post:
    The method for Spell Check I suggested is for System-Wide spell check, which is always being run in every text field by OS X's built-in dictionary.
