    Hi all-

    I'm realizing that my documents are becoming super fragmented and duplicated thanks to the multitude of cloud backups that are appearing now, so I have a pretty simple question: what is the case for iwork? I see IW as costing significantly less than MS Works, but works is much more standard and familiar to me. Am i missing any big pieces of these two issues?

    Beyond that I have an issue with not wanting to pay to upgrade to the latest MS suite, but with skydrive it seems possible that I won't need to... the core functionalities are all there. If i can get it to install and set up properly...

    and gdocs, for all its greatness, is just a mess to me as soon as I try to get something out of it as anything other than a pdf. destroys the formatting of anything I can throw at it, multiple versions, bleh.

    I prefer MS Office for Mac, for maximum compatibility with Windows users. If you don't want MS Office for some reason, there are many alternatives, such as iWork, NeoOffice, LibreOffice, OpenOffice, Google Docs, etc. Searching the forum will reveal dozens of threads discussing these various alternatives and the pros and cons of each, such as this small sampling:
