    no, because I'm on leopard.

    although my problem is by having both versions installed, it causes a lot of problems. :o

    Takes 1 minute plus on my MBP..

    And I'm beyond pissed that it doesn't include visio and infopath.

    Fuck microsoft. Stupid mf'ers.

    So glad I got over-excited and uninstalled NeoOffice. Back to NeoOffice I go.

    its worse than 04 and its slowness due to not being universal. i cant believe how horrible it is. hell it doesnt even seem like anything changed really, other than its slower.

    Mine loads up in about 15 seconds. The thing that eats my ass is that there is a lag when I type. I type over 120 WPM and it can not keep up. My laptop is fast as shit too, its irritating, and xeon I feel your pain.

    I'll reply though, even though Word 08 is slow as fuck, it still has wayyy more features that I use than pages. The citation thing is sick in itself, also I find that I like the grammar functions better too.
