    I've been reading some reviews of MS office 2008. My biggest concern is that how is the compatibility with office on windows?

    Does anyone find any review on that? I don't want create a file on Mac and then open it like crap on Windows.

    Thanks!

    I doubt there will be many problems with that. Office 2004 was really good about keeping the integrity of the file formats.

    By default it will save files in the new MS Office 2007 format (.docx, .pptx and .xlsx), but you will be given the opportunity to save in older office formats, as well as other popular office suite formats

    Cheers :apple:

    Does anyone know if you can set it to always save as .doc or .xls?

    I expect that there will be a setting for that, after all 2004 has an option to change the default.

    Of course, the lack of VBA will break a lot of stuff.
