I haven't used keynote and numbers yet so sorry I just switched from pc to mac and I must say I'm dispointed with iWork 08. I don't think it represents Apple, I don't think it's very intuitive or as easy to use as other programs. Some basic features seem to be missing when comparing it to Office 07, being unable to center the page bugs me like you wouldn't believe, I know some people will say that office is office and iWork is iWork but face the truth they are comparable products, and Apple would benefit from making it more versatile. (espacially for ex-windows users). There doesn't seem to be a way to see the fonts styles before trying them one by one. There should be way to browse through the font style list and see your text change instantly as you go down the list. Also for some reason when the page is at unzoomed (at a 100%) its almost unreadable, I have to put it on 125% to be able to read it. I havenn't seen a print preview option yet which also bugs me beyond reason. As I said before I find that Pages 08 isn't very intuitive or as easy to use as other programs, so if the features above are existant in this version of iWork 08 im truly sorry but I use it pages and I haven't found them anywhere. Haven't seen the wordcount option, Im not gonna saying about this one cuz im sure it must somewhere? Right? Anyone? If money was no object for me I think I would switch to Office for mac, it definitly looks better and easier to use (a friend of mine has it). If you need the cheapest version you can find iWork is still a good alternative.
