Just configuring an iMac and debating whether to get iWork at the same time. Have been using MS Office on various Windows versions for a very long time but the new MS office I'd get on Mac (If I went for that) has quite a different interface to the older versions I've been using anyway so there will be some relearning needed whatever I do. There is a decent saving to be had buying iWork at the time of iMac purchase so wondering if I should go for it. My main concern is not with learning it, but the inevitable need to work with Word and Excel files sent to me by Windows users. Does iWork read the latest (and older) versions of MSOffice and does it also work in practice (other than just in Apples adverts to both read and also write files in that format for sending to Windows users? In case it makes any difference, use is just standard 'home use' nothing heavy duty in terms of huge excel macros or mega complex word documents. If it doesn't work out I can go for OpenOffice (or whatever its called these days) but seems to me I should be trying something more tailored for Mac.
