    There is no reason to wait. It will not save you any money. I'm using Pages on Lion and it works fine. If Mountain Lion breaks the current version of Pages (and I don't believe it does) then Apple would update Pages to fix that problem before ML is released.

    Pages doesn't get many updates. Whenever they do release a new version, like the rest of the iWork package, it's just stability fixes and very little of anything is actually new. I don't think they're going to make us buy it over and over anymore for that reason. It would have to have a whole fullscreen interface change to match the iPad to be beneficial for most to upgrade.

    And no, I don't think they're doing a 2012. It's too late in the year for that, especially when the only announcements left this year is the iPhone and new iPods.

    Well, considering you'll be wiping your machine again, I wouldn't buy anything until ML. Doesn't make sense to be loading new software when you're going to get rid of it in 4 weeks time.
