I am sorry for the newb question but that is what I am when comes to Mac.... I come from a windows world and ms products get grumpy when you install, uninstall, load up programs of the same type to see which one you like better etc. I have downloaded neooffice, but I also have MS Student edition 2008. I was going to load up MS but was afraid of what the reaction to the OS would be to load it and run side by side with neo and also how it would react to being uninstalled should I not like it. Also most MS products that I am used to take over everything, will MS office 2k8 for Mac do the same? thanks in advanced for the help and sorry again or the newb questions.
