I just got a new MBP that shipped with Keynote (I will never touch PowerPoint again), Pages (not too into it so far) and Numbers (also not too into it), though I have not given each enough of a fair chance. I have had MS Office on previous Macs as well as other Open Office applications, though it has been many years, and things obviously change. Just curious to hear your thoughts on installing Office just for Word and Excel vs. using Pages and Numbers OR Google Docs or some Open Office application? I'm a light Excel and Word user. Thanks for your thoughts.
