If I already have iWork '06, the only program in it that I get a lot of use out of is keynote, have there been enough changes that it is worth upgrading? or is there a trial download somewhere so I can try it and find out for myself.

Do you get to keep the old templates when upgrading?

I haven't really used iWork '06, mainly because I accidently activated the trial when I bought my MacBook and forgot I had done that, but I'd like to have as many templates as I can, well, if I need them. In using iWork '08, I'm thinking I'm going to use it more when I need to, rather than Office.

All of the templates from Pages 2 are installed with iWork '08 except the journal templates. I opened the Pages 2 package (Control- or right-click on the application icon & choose show package contents from the contextual menu) & found the templates in Content > Resources > English > Templates & then copied the Journals folder to HD > Users > [my account] > Library > Application Support > iWork > Pages > Templates > My Templates & they now show up under My Templates in the Template Chooser.
