What is so terrible about Applework's spreadsheet for basic consumer spreadsheet requirements?

At work I use Excel, at home Appleworks. I can't remember the last time I cursed Appleworks, as for home use it does more than enough.

I agree, although I would like to see some advanced functions like sumif.

How good is the manual that comes with iWork '06? I just got iLife '06 today and a 30 day trial of iWork '06 was included so I installed it and after a couple of hours usage and seeing the improvements I am will to purchase it. I have two options, the first one is having a license key sent to me by email to unlock iWork or purchase a retail box with the DVD and manuals for Pages and Keynote. How good are the manuals that come in the retail box version?

As far as the function of iWork:

Pages - it is pretty much safe to say that this is NOT a word processor but a publisher.

Keynote - Great for multimedia presentations and easy web content. Very flexible when it comes to output. For instance, PowerPoint (PC version esp, and Mac version is very week in this) cannot be veiwed for anything other than PowerPoint. Keynote presents in Flash, PDF, Images, QuickTime, PowerPoint, Keynote. And QuickTime and Flash might I mention it presents in quite well with link and animiation functioning perfectly.

Online spreadsheet:

Online word editor:
http://www.writely.com/ (There are a few of these around)

Pretty soon you don't really have to use office.

If Apple were to do a spreadsheet (and I wish they would). I really hope they do it like nothing I've seen before.
