about iWork - Pages Jun 2011

Words cant describe how much easier it is to use Pages on a Mac to create newsletter and other design content than in Microsoft Office.

I don't use Pages as a Word processor but I do use it as a basic, but very quick and easy to use DTP software that is much easier, simpler and quicker to use than Microsoft's DTP offering, Publisher (which isn't on the Mac anyhow).
