Been looking at the iMac Intel Core Duo as a potential switch machine, and noticed that apart from the MS Office/iWork trials, there is no office software bundled with these machines. You get Omnioutliner but no Appleworks as on the PPC models. Apart from Firefox, MS Word is the app I use most on my PC, and to think that if I buy a Mac (and it would have to be an Intel) I'd have to shell-out atleast £55 for iWork to do word-processing, and if I want a spreadsheet (which I do) £349 for MS Office, or use the freebies. So my question is, other than the two app above and OO and Neo O. Why are there so few office apps for the Mac? The only other one I could find was 'Think Free Office', is that any good, will it open/save MS Office docs? This seems strange to me as Windows market eventhough dominated by MS Office still has loads of alternatives, cheap and expensive, so how come? Also side point; is there an affordable alternative to iPhoto? Something that does both organising and editing in the one app? Again does'nt seem to be too many alternatives for the Mac.
