    I was just wondering if there was any known issue to having both installed on the same machine....I will have a need to use both if I get iWork '09.

    Thanks.

    I notice more formating errors going from Pages to Word than from Word to Pages. Mostly minor stuff that no one would ever notice unless they were specifically comparing the two docs. I'd give Pages to Word a B and Word to Pages an A- . Your mileage may vary. Can't comment on anything else.

    iWork 09 and MS Office probably play fine together. But MS Office and Spaces gets a big fat F from me.

    Thanks.

    I just really wanted to make sure that installing both on the same machine didn't screw with your fonts and that sort of thing. I want the apps to stand alone with no affect on each other.

    This is a Mac we're talking about. That kind of thing doesn't happen.
