After reluctantly upgrading to Lion as i need to use icloud to keep updated, i found WORD and all its family just did not work.

It still doesnt.

 

But after five days of using PAGES and messing about with TEXT, a mate told me about OPEN OFFICE.

 

I downloaded it (v3) and it seems to be working, opening WORD docs and behaving!!!

 

This is great news, as most mac users rely on word for either work or studies.

Shame the LION has killed off Word.... but im sure they will fix it.
