    I have iWork '08 and I quite like it, only Pages takes a very long time to load (upwards of 10 dock bounces) - and this on a 6 month old Alu iMac (2,4 GHz, 1 GB RAM). Is this normal? It seems like a very long time since even Word on my 5 year old XP laptop takes way less to launch.

    More RAM should help but please take into account it does load a template viewer among other WYSIWYG nonsense. Word 2008 loads slowly until you turn off a few of these pretty features.

    Thanks, turning off the template viewer helped a lot! I never thought that that might be the cause.
