    Well, well.  When I first saw that Mavericks was released for free, I opened MAS, and saw that iWork was also free.  I just didn't bite on them, because I'm just not a very good gambler!

     

    Mavericks is still listed as free.  But iWork Apps are not.  I'm running SL; don't know if that makes a difference.

    I was just hoping that you would GO AWAY !

    It's so sad to read your replies.  I'm just hoping that in "real life" you are a much more amiable person.

    Nope, math is exactly right:

     

    N= 2,016 total  "votes" for all rankings

     

    1 and 2 stars = 1,441 combined "votes" = 71.4%

     

    3 stars = 126 "votes" = 6.1%

     

    4 and 5 stars = 449 combined "Votes" = 22.2%

     

    Total of percentages:   99.7% (rounding errors cause it to total less than 100%)

    sorry to disappoint you.  I'm very amiable, both here and in real life.  It's funny how I'm mostly just trying to curb the negativity here and I get called un-amiable.  Mob rules I suppose.

    Press and marketing contacts.  Ask them why they haven't covered the crap that is iWork.

    My statistical summary has nothing to do with the comments, just the totals of ratings per "star category."

     

    And the trend is definitly downward.  one week ago the summary was:

     

    one and two stars       69.75

    Three stars                  6.5%

    Four and five stars       23.6%

    @PeterBreis0807 Your efforts in creating this thread and documenting the changes in Pages are to be commended and are greatly appreciated. Your expressions of anger and frustration about the way Apple introduced those changes are understandable and shared by many (including me). Your continued Apple flaming is simply spreading fear uncertainty and doubt, reflect poorly on you and are undermining the benefits of creating this thread. Clearly you have a lot to offer the community of Mac-users, but the rampant speculation about Apple's motivations and intentions is not helpful. Your ongoing trash talk with @robogobo is childish. He can have a different opinion. Let it be.

     

    @robogobo Your efforts to bring a calm and rational alternative perspective are appreciated. Entering a flame war is not. That Peter disagrees is OK, let it be. On the other hand, some others are now acting like trolls, so remember rule number one of interent forums: don't feed the trolls.

     

    I used to point people to this thread for information on the lost features, but not anymore. It's just degenerated into a flame war.

     

    @PeterBreis0807 and @robogobo: I actually believe you both want to help others. If so, can either of you tell me how to unsubscribe from this thread because I'm tired of dozens of posts of hate and anger and unhelpful name-calling clog up my email inbox.

    Thanks, Tim. I feel the same but I hadn't bothered to explain.

     

    Clicking "stop email notifications" in the top right of this page should do the trick. Then again, I'd appreciate your input here. :-)

    Tim,  you're right.  Thanks.  I'm wiping my hands and unsubscribing.

    Thanks Tim, that was straight and very kind of you.

     

    Peter - you are a tremendous asset to people like me, older than the technology. Remember, I still am loyal and that beer is still on offer.

     

    robogo - like Tim I respect your wish to be helfpul to the rest of us.

     

    I am so new to this that I find the maxim 'don't feed the trolls' hilarious but accurate.

     

    Let it be!

     

    Best wishes to all three of you!

    Tim,

     

    Well done. Perfectly stated.  

     

    Could you address congress next?

     

    Seriously, thanks for being a voice of reason and truth. Very refreshing.

     

    Peace
