I'm a college student just starting to write my thesis. Microsoft Word would the obvious choice of which program to use, but I will be dealing with a lot of images and I hate using Word with images. I know how to do it, but I always seem to have weird issues. Anyways, would Pages perhaps be better suited? I ask this because the vibe I've picked up about Pages is that is not really a word processor per se and more of a psuedo-desktop publisher. So would Pages be good for lots of text, lots of diagrams/figures, but only a little formatting? Any insights would be appreciated before I drop $60 for iWork (I wouldn't really care about Keynote though).
