Im thinking of getting my first Mac after Panther is released. I spent much of my waking life working on MS Office documents will things like formatting be 100% intact when shared between Office X and windows users? Is it possible to get by with Appleworks, Open Office or some other package instead? What changes will I experience between using my Palm & Outlook vs. Palm & Entourage? Presently I use Namo Webeditor from time to time and really like it, but unfortunately theres no Mac version. What would you recommend in its place? Also, Im really dependent on some free programs & utilities on my PC. Are there any equivalents for the Mac? ePrompter small taskbar program that checks multiple email accounts and notifies you when theres new mail. Lets you read/reply/delete from the server. Webmon similar utility that alerts when specified web pages are updated. You can specify the start and end-points of the html to avoid things like date/time scripts. Wordweb free dictionary/thesaurus that integrates well with Word.
