Office 2008 is compatible with Lion, but it needs to have been previously installed on Snow Leopard. The actual installer is PowerPC based (i.e. won't work on Lion).

2008 Seems to be working fine on Lion but I've had limited use as I've only installed Lion recently. I wonder if Microsoft will adopt some of the new features of Lion (Version saving, etc.) into Office 2011 with an update, if it will be a future version (Office 2014 or whatever) feature or if MS Office will ever support these system features.

I just installed Mac Office 2008 on my new Air using an external optical drive. Everything seemed to work.

I would say that Apple Pages is a very different animal from Word. If you want word processing and page layout, it's fine and pretty elegant. If you need to work on documents that other people need to work on in Word, don't do it. You don't want to be trying to translate things back and forth.

I feel your pain. Apparently Apple isn't listening or they don't care. Either way its an unacceptable situation that could easily have been remedied during the development stage.

It isn't quite clear to me if Office 2008 for Mac will work on the new Mac Book Pros (summer 2011) with Lion. David, would you please say what Apple computer you installed your Office 2008 on? Thanks. Another issue is that the new Mac Book Pros come with Intel CPUs, will Office 2008 work with these Intel CPUs?

One more question, is anyone using Apple's Pages instead of MS Office? Would this be a reasonable substitute for MS Word? Thanks again.

I dumped Word for Pages and have never been sorry. Pages can import and export Word docs easily. But sometimes if odd fonts or odd graphics are used, there can be translation issues that need editing.
The biggest issue for me is that Numbers just doesn't have enough compatibility with Excel to be able to replace it yet. So I only keep Office for Excel.
But Pages and Keynote, IMHO, are far superior to Word and PowerPoint.
And $20 from the App store, it's a no brainer to give them a try!
