I know it reads not saves docx, but does it support index (spotlight) and preview (quicklook) it?
Also what about xlsx/pptx? I assume it's same pattern?
Download the iWork 09 trial. you can use it for 30 days. Remember to do the software updates before you use it.
Preview/QuickLook is a function of the OS, not Pages or Numbers or Keynote. Spotlight is also not part of the iWork apps. And, yes, you can QuickLook Office x files & Spotlight should index them.
