    I bought Office 2010 and run it through Parallels in Windows 7. I had no knowledge of the Mac version coming soon.

    I would like to have typing software on the Mac side as well. Should I buy iWork '09 right now (considering it's very cheap at Amazon) or hold on till the '10 version gets released? (when might that be?)

    Thanks.

    Rumors seem to indicate a release towards the end of summer. The choice is up to you as they could just be rumors, meaning you end up waiting.

    The only thing is that if the new version comes out, the price won't be nearly as cheap as it is right now.

    Sorry to crash the thread with another question but its on the same theme.

    I've just received my new imac which came with iLife 09.

    Will Apple offer a cheap upgrade route to users who have just invested a lot of money in a PC? or are we suppose to consider our "new" software obsolete and purchase at full price?
