    For those running on Intel Macs download this. It might be beta but it runs a lot faster than PCC Office 2004.


    As for Screens:

    If it is anything like Office 2007 for my PC (which it looks exactly like) it is the best writing program out there imo. When I switched to my MAC I was sad only 2004 was out. Good to know this is coming out soon. Pages is alright but nothing like the new office.

    Notice a few bugs in Word, especially in notebook view. When using Expose, word does not highlight and therefore harder to switch windows. Theres also another problem when you scroll the text dissappear, but the data is not gone persay...just that you cant see it.
