    Installed the new iwork09, but last night got updates to all of the 08 apps. Am I supposed to trash the 08 apps?

    No reason to keep them, IMO

    That's what I thought, too. But, was wondering why the installer didn't see 08 and remove for me.

    Since you paid for '08, I don't think automatic removal would have been appropriate.

    I hope that you needed specific features that are in '09, because '09 is generally not otherwise cost-effective for someone who owns '08.

    when I got iWork '09, I deleted iWork '06... saved me a good 2GB of hard drive space, and that was just Pages and Keynote! it's amazing how much they've shrunken the app sizes... but I do appreciate the installer not deleting the old version... as was mentioned, it was paid for.

    Is all you have to is delete the apps in the iWork '08 folder in the Applications directory? Does that take care of it?
