    I need to use Microsoft Office 2007. I have boot camp installed, but I hate having to restart to Windows just for the sole purpose of using Microsoft Office 2007, which also keeps me from multi-tasking with other stuff. What programs are available? I don't want to install windows again.

    Will Open Office.org fill your needs? It's totally compatible with MS Office, free and there's a Mac version.

    The only good option appears to be running the mac version of office (office 2008). Vmware/parallels eat half your system resources just to run office. Openoffice is maybe 90% compatible with ms office and lacks a few useful features.

    Office 2008 for mac is slightly worse than office 2007 for pc..about equivalent feature-wise to office 2003 for pc, but it is by far the best option and are suppose to be 100% compatible with each other.
