I was wondering what document processor people here use. Please vote and respond why.
LaTeX. Science journals don't bother with stupid Office formats.
Office for Mac as I didn't have to pay for it. Also because I needed integration with Exchange
iWork because I don't work with Office and iWork is much cheaper.
As of currently, after picking up my macbook and iWork '09, I won't be using Office anymore.
Office for Mac as I need the compatability with the Windows versions.
Office for Mac because I didn't have to pay for it. I did buy and use iWorks before this.
What? I'm confused.
I use both? Office (Word/Excel) and iWork (Keynote, never touching powerpoint again) Occasionally if I need a template I'll use Pages.
Possibly add that option to the poll?
Non-Poll Debate Thread.
What option? A mixed option choice? Like "I use both"?
Thanks for the link.
Yes. I can't imagine that I'm the only one that thinks you can get the best of both worlds.
Neither can I imagine that you are the only one. I would love to add that choice to the poll but I can't figure out how. Guess posters would have to chose the one that they prefer/use the most.
I mostly use OpenOffice or plain text. Both are free and easy to use. I might use Latex more if I was more comfortable with it.
Yeah, same here. I use both MS Office for Word and Excel and I use iWork. I need Keynote because Powerpoint will never be Keynote and Pages is just tops in terms of the templates. Word has better compatibility with MS Office. The OP needs to add a combo choice so I can't vote until he does.
I've added it for you
Office and TextEdit for little things...
I use iWork primarily but I do have a copy of office on the computer just in case I need it for compatibility reasons primarily for school.
MS Office. Just because, really. I make my staff use OpenOffice/NeoOffice
I use a host of apps to accomplish these things.
Quark, Framemaker, and InDesign for page layout (mostly, and in that order)
Illustrator, Microstations CAD, Freehand, AutoCAD,
And I don't really use DB/SS much. <shrug> Apple Numbers is kinda kewl!
Paint is PhotoShop 11 mostly and any of some 10 other apps occasionally,
3D is Lightwave3D 9.6, Maya, Houdini, MotionBuilder mostly - if we're going there.
I guess I'm old school. Or am I just off-topic?
I bought Office, wasted money. I bought iWork, I was able to create better stuff for school projects and such. Oh, and I didn't have to mess around to get Office working before I actually got work done.
DOWN WITH OFFICE. The new 2007 versions were a PITA during presentation day. My teacher's notebook didn't have 07, so half the class was screwed. Why did MS decide to change the format? Does it provide any advantages besides driving away your customers towards Apple and better quality hardware/software?
You seem to contradict yourself here.
"Better" is subjective. The Office formats are no better than the stupid Apple formats.
Text editors (various - TextEdit, TextWrangler, BBEdit), Numbers from iWork and Appleworks for spreadsheets on some older powerbooks.
eMac - Office 2004
Desktop PC: Open Office
Laptop - Microsoft Works
iWork is great. I'm new to mac and I'm loving iWork compared to Office 2007.
I may try NeoOffice next week
