I would buy iWork for my mac, but considering I'll be buying a new mac in a year or two and I'll get it free then, I can't seem to bring myself to do it.

Better yet, Apple should revert to the Pages '09 layout. I refuse to update from my iWork '09 until they fix the GUI in the newer ones.

It isn't just the interface, it's the features. Yosemite is beginning to scare me. If the new OS breaks iWork '09, I will be unable to buy any new Macs, maybe ever, as I am highly dependent on Pages 4.1, and it looks like feature parity is pretty much a lost cause.

Was hoping that the updates fix a strange bug i've been seeing since going to Yosemite.

Essentially, any time I open an iCloud based document in Numbers I get a "Modifications aren't in sync. Choose which versions to keep." and it lists just one version (the last copy I modified). If I click cancel, it closes the app. If I click that version, I'm good, but after closing and re-opening the document I get greeted with the same message.

Ugh, that stinks. I forgot that the new iWork is also missing features. I'm really getting sick of Apple killing support for stuff. One day, I might even switch to FreeBSD if it gets bad enough. They still support 32-bit PowerPC and have ports for it, and I'm installing it on a second bootup partition on an iBook G4 right now

It reeks. Some users of the Yosemite beta are saying iWork '09 still works, others say not. A risk I cannot afford to take. I may be forced into a decision to buy new iMacs before Yosemite is released, or be even more screwed than I am already.

They definitely won't be "reverting", but enough user pressure will see them meet in the middle. The new layout is not bad, but the lack of certain dropped features, like linked text boxes, is very frustrating!

What makes this worse is the silence from Apple on the subject. I've submitted many messages through their official Feedback forms, because I want to do it the right way. A knowledgebase article from the iWork team would go a long way to easing the concerns around this.

Hey Apple, posting update notes saying "improved performance and bug fixes" is not sufficient enough for us power users. Please think about that.

I considered that, but the Trial seemed to be distributed by Softpedia.com and I really wasn't prepared to trust Apple software being distributed by a third party. That said, I'm giving it a go.

"improved performance and bug fixes" is corporate-speak for, "no new functions have been added".

I recommend buying iWork 09. There are some reputable sellers selling it on ebay for $20-40. If you find that iWork 09 is not to your liking you can then upgrade for free to the latest version.

This assumes they want to ease our concerns, when what they really seem to want is for us to migrate to the new, less powerful software, and forget that we ever had something better.

You can always install Mavericks on your new mac.

Downgrading the OS to below what a Mac came with isn't supported by Apple and might not always work, or it could work but have problems.

Using anything but MS Office in a workplace or school environment is still laughable

It's good that it's free but Apple has a loooong way to go
