I love Apple’s Pages. Sure, it’s missing tons of features from Microsoft Word. But what it does, it does well, and its got a fast and easy to use interface. Styles seem to work better than with Word.

Of course, I need to work with my Microsoft Word colleagues from time-to-time. I exported a Pages document to Word format today, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see that my Pages comments were also converted over to Word comments:

Pages Comment...
...Converted to MS Word

I assumed the comments would be lost. It’s the attention to details (like getting an exporter to work really well) that matter to me. Details, details, details.

  1. only apple can manage to charge for a half-implemented word-processor in the third millenium. 🙂

  2. Hey, I’m so excited to see some innovation in a word processor after dealing with basically unchanged MS Word for nearly a decade I’ll take the good with the bad. 🙂

    I think Pages and Keynote are partly responsible for inspiring the much redesigned Office 2007 (which though I have several of the betas I haven’t touched yet).
