    New to OSx, years with Windows (ugh). Question is what's the deal with word processing, spreadsheets, ect (ie Microsoft Office stuff) on this machine? I assume my Office disc is of no use to me now. Thanks (first post)

    If you're Office disc is for Windows, then its not much use for you unless you want to install Windows on your machine (via virtualization software or boot camp). But I'm guessing by the "ugh" in your post that that's not an option. :p

    However, there is a version of Office for Mac. Apple has it's equivalent programs in iWork (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, which can all be purchased on the Mac App Store). A quick search of this forum will bring up several other alternatives as well.
