    Should I buy iWork 08 or use NeoOffice? I think iWork 08 looks solid. I use iWork 06. I am using NeoOffice for spreadsheets. Should I pay the $71 dollars and upgrade to iWork 08. I am really on the fence here. I use pages a lot, and sometimes keynote. However, I am new to spreadsheets. I need to start taking care of my business earnings and expenditures.

    Thanks for any input.

    The industry standard is Microsoft Office.

    Having said that, as you know, iWork '06 has good implementations for word processing and presentations. iWork '08 improves on these applications plus adds a decent spreadsheet application. Numbers works well and I would think serve you well for a small business. Granted Numbers is not Excel, but in many ways much easier to use and comes with a decent feature set.

    I think that you would be pleased with iWork '08.
