iWork, in my opinion, is somewhat over rated. While I really like the aesthetics and presentation, Pages isn't nearly as good as word for just plain typing. Pages is much, much better than word at page layout, with much better templates and a more user friendly interface, but it isn't that great for writing essays or reports. The spell check is much weaker on Pages, and it misses a lot of simple grammer things that Word automatically corrects, and also a personal issue I have with it is that its default font is Helvetica. Who uses Helvetica? Every time I make a new document I have to readjust the font, which can be a little annoying. Keynote is better than powerpoint, though, in pretty much every way. Numbers is much easier to use than excel, but has much fewer formulas and functions than excel which is pretty important. So, the new release of office is significant because MS has been doing it for a while. Apple's new iwork is better than earlier versions, and is better than office at certain things, but as overall it still isn't equal to office.

I would definitely get the 2011 or an even later version, if available. I upgraded from the 2008 to the 2011.

This upgrade was real and available through Microsoft. Unfortunately it has already expired.

Link does not work. Tried it in both I.E. and Firefox.

3 separate installs are allowed. But there is no activation so in theory you can install as many times as you wish.

I have an iMac with OS X 10.6.8. I have had NO issue with this Microsoft Office 2008 version.

My investigation before hand leaned me toward the older version , citing problems with new version. My only question is why my computer always asks to allow network access. That feels a little creepy. Bit otherwise, it's worked well

I did not buy a download, I bought it on a physical CD. No, this is not compatible with Mavericks. Microsoft Office 2011 is.
