This isn't strictly true.
an application by Lighthouse Design called "Concurrence". But it is almost certainly a completely new code base.
Pages isn't really similar to any particulare application for NeXT that I remember. I think Lighthouse Design was rumored to be working on a word processing-like application, though I don't recall it ever being released.
( as an aside, OmniGraffle is basically a revamp of "Diagram!" by Lighthouse Design...plus plus )
If Numbers is anything like the two
(yes, two) spreadsheets for NeXT that were quite innovative (Lotus Improv and Quantrix by...again...Lighthouse Design), it will look a lot like this: http://www.materialarts.com/FlexiSheet/index.html.
It certainly would be Apple's style anyway.
I hope we see it too. And some improvements to Pages as well.
