That was a myth that has been debunked.

Any free Six-String guitar apps to keep me company???
I have a guitar app with 5 working strings and a broken high E. That is probably more what you need.

As for your slightly more legitimate statement. I know of people that have a mac running MS office, chrome browser, dropbox, and a bunch of other stuff. That was the WinTel model not the Walled-off-Garden that is Apple. What is the point of getting an Apple if you are going to then not use the whole value proposition. At least for me it makes no sense. If I was going to do the mix and match and then fight with the integration model, I would get a cheap ass WinTel thing.

I don't have an issue with Office, other than it is expensive for what it does, but Google's crap calls home like crazy.

Just as IOS people (around 100 million) managed to work around the availability of Office I am sure we OSX users can do the same

Microsoft = grunge = damp in the head

Good Riddance.
I am so sick of "rebuilding the database".
At my work I have been on a mission to get everyone off of Office 2008 (and 2004). Replacing it with Apples suite for people that don't need advanced features, and with 2011 for those that do.

As far as all you Microsoft haters saying "just use Google docs" or "Just use Mail and Keynote". Those products are great for light use or SOHO use. But in medium to large businesses. In accounting, analytics and other heavy numbers departments there is no replacement that has as many features and as much third party support as the Office Suite.
I know it is hard to use in some ways, and can be a PITA to troubleshoot. (see "rebuild database...") but the google docs and Apple suite equivalents of Excel are just not nearly as advanced. This also applies to the email client as well. Though I am still disapointed that I cannot manage distribution lists from Mac Outlook 2011, but I can from PC Outlook 2003?

That is because of design. Do that in Contacts app. It is a system wide address book in Mountain Lion. Before it was called Address book.
Outlook just rolls in Contacts, Calendar, Mail into one application where Apple uses a dedicated Mail app and uses global Address Book and Calendar repositories that many third-party apps can use.

AFAIK you cannot manage an Exchange server DL from Contacts, or any Mac application that I now of. You can only build your own DLs that are limited to being used by you. Not any use to me.
