OK, I don't have it yet, but the Macbook comes with 'omni outliner' 1) what is this software? 2) I will get iwork (no advice here, it is just what I want), but I want to do basic database, not pro grade....I am looking to do simple database collection (like addresses etc to share with cross-platforms--i can even make it a PDF so others can read). Nothing more complicated than that. Would google spreadsheet suffice? I am switching (FINALLY) from windows 98SE on an going on 9 years PC, I had MS works, which basically is good for nothing. I am starting to get attachements from people -pc people- that are database or excel documents....I need to share address info with these people.
