    As we all know the iWork apps are available to every Mac user in iCloud. Obviously they're still in beta, but when they're out of beta what kind of features do you think we'll get. I imagine it'll be slightly different than the paid versions?

    I think iWork on the web will have the same functionality as the paid apps on iOS (as far as technically feasible i.e. similar to how iOS iWork apps lack some features of their Mac OS X counterparts). AFAIK Apple doesn't have a history of offering free and paid tiers for the same app.

    Furthermore, since new iOS devices now get iWork apps free, it's likely that new Macs will also get the next version of iWork for Mac for free.

    A free, powerful office suite on iPhone, iPad, Mac & Web seamlessly kept in sync via iCloud would be pretty cool.

    It's pretty awesome. The only thing I haven't seen in the web-based beta is the ability to play videos in a Keynote presentation. And that was a few weeks ago-- maybe they've been enabled by now.

    Everything else works, and it's flippin' gorgeous.
