Apple doesn't track software installs as long as the user doesn't register it. I don't know about -ms policies/procedures. At any rate, getting either of them via Limewire is illegal. iWork is only $79 to purchase legally and NeoOffice is freeware/donationware. Why burden your system with Office?<br><br>
iWork 08 is Great !!<br><br>for $79 it's a steal... and you get a cool spreadsheet now too. Numbers <br><br>Tell your friend to quit being "So Cheap!" I agree MS Office is over-priced, but iWork is Great... so is NeoOffice. Between the 2 you should cover everything for $79. Support Apple.<br><br>David (OFI)
I hate to pipe up for MS, but the education package of Office is really a very good deal. The retail price is around 140 bucks, and you get three licenses for the price. That's pretty good, I think.<br><br>   

I'm so anti-M$ that I won't install their products if they were 100% legally free.. <br><br>I've been using the family pack of iWork since it was out ($99 for 5 Macs), and I've also been using the heavy loading & slow NeoOffice for a while to read/write Arabic M$ Office documents.<br><br>
I really am becoming a Neo Office fan. There seems to be less and less of a reason to even own MS Office. Keynote and Pages are now more advanced, but if you need to work with Office documents to share with other people the conversion between Neo Office and MS Office is brilliant.<br><br>In fact, I like it better than Excel. Since I don't like Numbers (yet) it has now become the default for opening .xls files, even though I have MS Office.<br><br>
