    so what is the average mac user supposed to use for spreadsheeting now that iWork is supposedly doing away with the need to get MSWord (and therefore Office)

    The average Mac user will still be getting AppleWorks, which includes a spreadsheet application, included with their purchase.

    Back in the motherland
    Apple patented "Cell", which sounds like a spreadsheet app. My guess is that it will be incorporated into iWork 06. By then Apple will have a full Office suite that will be mostly compatible to MS Office.
    I think that they didn't want to create a full blown competitor to MS Office just yet. They're slowly trying to build up iWork as the Office suite so MS doesn't pull out.
