In a post over at The Apple Blog titled the 'Pleasure of Productivity', Liam Cassidy, a self described switcher describes his migration from Microsoft Office to Apple's iWork suite of productivity applications that includes Pages, Keynote, and Numbers.

Interesting quotes
"I've really thrown myself into Pages, Numbers and Keynote. For someone who has used Microsoft Office almost exclusively for the last twenty-odd years, that's a huge change!"

"Yet, after pushing myself to use Pages I'm rapidly moving away from Word. Why? Well, it's not because Pages has more features. It doesn't. Pages, by comparison, is a bare-bones word processor, far less mature than Word."

"The same is true for Keynote. And Numbers. Especially Numbers. For 30 years business computing was mired in gun-metal grey spreadsheet-hell. Then Apple wanders up to the bar in all its turtleneck glory and, with a flourish, produces an application that makes spreadsheets a pleasure to produce. Spreadsheets become Art. Incredible!"
