iWork '09 - quick look review
Apple - iWork - Documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The Mac way.
Just a quick review, no big writeup. If you have iWork '08 installed - you have iWork '09 in a nutshell. No huge or major changes, but some polishing has been done to make things much easier in your life.

I have a habit of always buying the very latest software for the mac the second it becomes available, this is no exception as with every year.
On Keynote '09, the iPhone application to use the iPhone as a remote is by far the show stealer feature.
On Pages '09 the mail cross platform integration is really useful and the only major feature worth mentioning.
On Numbers '09 the new graphs and functions are a welcome addition to the library of tricks.
As has been reported with Snow Leo reviews, no major updates for 2009 on ANY Apple software, and iWork will follow that trend with polishing the edges just enough for heavy iWork users to want it, but persons who only use it every now and then can easily pass it by without missing anything.

Just like NBA Live from the Electronic Arts games and the NFL series, they add a little bit here and presto you have a the same game every year. I'm not implying this is the same, I was just reminded of it. Thanks for the review.

Can you help me decide? Im new to mac and I was wondering what would be a better office suite. My options are MS Office 2008 or iWorks 2009.

I don't like the office suite much. It lags on the mac and the menus are a bit of a pain to navigate
If i didn't have to have it I wouldnt

MS office sucks on the mac.
Features are there, performance is not.
