Features, Office Microsoft said that Office 2008 will come in three versions. The "core" version, Office 2008 for Mac, including all the applications plus Automator and Microsoft Exchange Server support, will cost USD 399.95, with a USD 239.95 upgrade price. Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Student Edition will allow three user licenses, but it won't include the Automator and Exchange Server support. It will cost USD 149.95 for the retail version, with no upgrade pricing announced. New to the lineup will be Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition, which will add Microsoft Expression Media for Mac, a revised version of the iView Media digital asset management utility. iView was acquired by Microsoft in 2006. This version will cost USD 499.95, with a USD 299.95 upgrade price.

Agree. NeoOffice works fine on my MacBook.

When it catches up to v2.3 it'll be even better.

No thank you Bill, I'd rather not.

I guess it's only on OSNews where you'll find people so keen on NeoOffice. I use it on my Macbook for those rare documents that are sent to me in OO format. Other wise, I just leave it alone. That thing runs slower than MS Office 2004 which is running under emulation on my Mac.

Thanks, but no thanks.
