I don't find this program very useful. I don't see when I need to use it. I am wondering if you people use it?

Do you mean iWork? If so then almost daily.

I need to dig out my trial disk and give pages a try. I use Word to do lesson plans all of the time. I'd like to see how Pages works in comparison to Word. I LOVE Keynote and think it may be worth the price of iWork (with Education discount).

not sure if Iwork has been out longer than 8 years.

I think that is 8 to 12 times a year:)

I love pages. However can you tell me how to get those cool 3D wood textures in keynote?

I do not own iWork. I have ThinkFree Office instead.

I don't own iWork either. I use word for all of my word processing, and powerpoint for any presentations I need to do.

I use iWork occasionally for anything I need to do in a presentation or for people wanting to do the family newsletter type thing. That's about it. I find that I can do anything I want to do (in terms of Word processing) in either Mail or TextEdit so it's not worth the money to me. Companies I know use it so I borrow theirs when I need to do the odd presentation but it's not often.

Pages is a very strong competitor to people who don't use all of the advanced features of InDesign. I've been able to push Pages to do some very advanced things, just using my knowledge of page layout. It's WELL worth the money and then some.

What do you use iWork for. I don't even know how to use it in fact. It is just sitting there on my computer.

One thing that I love about iWork is that you can export to PDF directly.

from the print utility.

 

I don't understand, what do you mean?

 

open a document. go to print. on that menu it says "save as pdf" then there u go. a pdf directly from your document.

A word processor.

I really do not see its use in this pluged world. Every one use PC in office and i can not bring my mac to my work as a rule. So it is hardly of any use to me. Though i checked and had a hands on at apple store, i think its a great utility if you can carry your powerbook to work or have one there for the presentation.

 

Other then that, its of no use as you can not run these presentations on PC's.

My test drive version is still unused and i got a new test version with iLife 6.
