I've never used iWorks and I'm excited that I can download it for free. I'm currently at work so I haven't been able to download and install the apps, but how does it compare to MS Office? In the past few years, I have used MS Office and Open Office. But mainly the latter. I had been looking for a replacement for OpenOffice because and luckily for me, I can download iWorks as a new iMac owner.
