    the time has come for me to clean up my -ahem- not-so-legal microsoft office issues. I'm running the same copy on multiple comps, and it wont run on more than one at the same time. so I think it's time to own up and legitimize. however, the thought of paying several hundred dollars for a microsoft product just hurts.

    does anyone have any thoughts on when apple might introduce a pro-level spreadsheet ap to go with iwork? appleworks is totally out of date at this point and not worth it, right?

    Just take a look at Pages for what apple might do with a spreadsheet.
    IOW don't expect it to be necessarily "professional", but at least look it.
    Don't expect apple to piss-off MS, at least not instantly.

    Using the same logic just look at Final Cut Pro, iTunes, OSX etc etc etc.

    I think MS Office is an excellent suite but you might want to check out
    Mariner Calc or OpenOffice.

    The AppleWorks spreadsheet is a bit limited, but if it does what you want, it could be worth buying.

    As for a new spreadsheet program from Apple, the expectation is with iWork'06 there will be one.
