    You can export iWork files (such as .pages .numbers .keynote) as their respected files. But not everything will stay the same. A lot of Pages and Keynote is the same as Word and Powerpoint, Numbers is slightly different. Having used a PC for half your life as nothing to do with using iWork. :p

    iWork is much easier to use than Office for just typing docs or creating good looking documents or presentations. use Office if that is what you are used to and need the compatibility. iWork does read and save to Office formats though.

    Personally I use iWork, but have a copy of Office:Mac because of the few things that dont quite work (Some forms for example dont display correctly in iWork) <- This way I get the best of both worlds, I can read everything Im sent, and I can use iWork's much nicer UI.
