    probably an easy answer here, but how exactly do I set iWork as the default program for .doc, .ppt and other MS word formats?

    Highlight a .doc file -- use get info in the FILE menu (or command-i) and change the open file with app to Pages and you can change all to this default.

    Of course you can always take the MS Office trial folder and right click and compress it -- that'll keep Office from opening again.

    ok... compressing works for powerpoint and excel, but text edit is till messing with my word docs... and OSX doesn't seem to want to let "change all" work... grr. oh well.
