    I just lost my faith in the rumored AppleWork7.0 or iOffice 1.0 or Apple Office 1.0 ... :(

    I wish for a word processor based in LaTeX, with a basic (like M$ word)and an advance mode (where you can type LaTeX commands...) also, for a XML spreedsheet....

    came on apple!!

    Well, maybe Apple have promised M$ NOT to make an own version of Word or Excel.
    This is so that M$ will still make 'needed' apps like WMP 9, and MSN and Office X (with DRM support) in the furure. Kinda like a gentlemans agreement. Not likely, but ya never know ;)
    Also projects like OpenOffice being "ported" to Aqua, thus making it Mac OS X-like, and not needing X11 to run, won't help Apple's investing time/effort/$$$ in making another Office suite.
