Review: Apple Pages (iWork ’05)

In the interest of sparing you the deadly anticipation, I’ll come out and say it: Pages is not a Microsoft Word killer. In fact, it’s doesn’t even come close to being a full-fledged Microsoft Word replacement. The way I see it, they’re two different products good for two different things. The fact that they both deal with words is simply a technicality. If anything, Pages is more of a combination of Microsoft Word and another member of the Microsoft Office family: Publisher. Microsoft has failed to port Publisher to the Mac for whatever reason (“Grr! I’m Microsoft and I’ll do what I want!”), so there’s a gaping hole in the Office:Mac suite.
