    Urgh!. I am sooo pissed off. Here i am thinking "Hmmm, let me try pages and see if its any good". So i start writing a 1000 word report using pages and i'm down to 800+ words and move on to creating a table, i create the table and as i'm filling it up guess what happens?........i get "Pages unexpectedly quit, Mac OS......".

    My report is gone and i have to start from scratch!!!. Yes i know what you're all thinking...why didn't you save it. Well i assumed it'll automatically save or ask me to save changes as Microsoft Word does every 10 minutes. You'd think Apple would've incorporated this feature...apparently not!.

    Well i sure as h e l l will not be using pages again. Good riddance and back to and i can't believe i'm saying this......Microsoft Word.

    That sucks...It's never happened to me (fingers crossed), but I am hoping that autosave at least becomes an optional preference in Pages '07.

    Pages and Microsoft Office are different.. you shouldn't assume that it will save automatically.

    Seems like you're letting your first experience with Pages dictate its value. Pages really is great, and I personally prefer it's tidy appearance over the bloated Word. And the name, too... sure, I've written "pages" of text before. Never have I written a singular "word" for an entire document.

    Give it another chance... you know you want to.

    There are thousands of Macintosh applications. Dozens of them have an autosave feature.
