i'm also debating if i should get office 2004 or 2008. still split...
keep hearing mixed comments on each
My University distributes all lecture notes via Office 2007/8 documents, so for me it is a must. Also the use of citations and the bibliography within Word is very useful especially for long essays as it can be set to do it automatically, which saves alot of time. Compatibly with the computers on the uni campus is also very important too me. For me Office was a no brainer, however I have never used anything else such as Pages etc, so not sure on that side if things. Hope this helps.
May I suggest LaTeX? While not a WYSIWYG editor like Word or Pages, it really comes into it's own when writing longer papers and working with citations and bibliographies.
Besides which it's free and produces great looking output.
Seconded. I've only recently started using it, but it made writing a maths report thing I've been doing for my own enjoyment dead easy and plus TeXShop is such a light editor that it uses next to no resources on your computer and always feels snappy (unlike Microsoft Word).
If you try it, please.. post about it.
Looks good. I think I'll give it a try
Trying it out now. Doesn't look too bad at all.
I moved from Office 2004 to 2008 and I much prefer 2008 now. I have no problems with stability or slowing on my Al iMac.
Office 2008 should work, but I use LaTex when citations and academic paper formats are required. It takes some getting used to since you embed the formating commands yourself, but it produces nice PDFs and has a ton of flexibility.
Oh, and it's free.
They have this awesome notebook view (I don't know if they had this in previous versions). Honestly, Office 2008 is great and is probably your best choice as a student. I am also a student at a university. I tried the neooffice/iWork combo, but documents never came out the same. When transferring neooffice to Works, the documents would actually get longer. So, now I use Office 2008 for all school related assignments. I then use iWork for all my misc. tasks.
here is the notebook view:
