Maybe one of the reasons women in tech are as elusive as unicorns is because when they do an outstanding job, the quality of their work is not the thing they are complimented on, it's their appearance.
Engineering has a catastrophic problem with recruiting women and it needs to be solved, not ignored.
I doubt it's better. It's a decent product to be sure. It still doesn't compare to Office for business productivity and compatibility. However, I won't spend $100 a year as an educator just to be able to edit docs on my iPad. It's really aimed at businesses, I think. In my opinion, sales are probably going to be dismal for anyone outside of corporate America. If they went to a tiered system with different one-time/subscription prices for home and business users, they'd do better.
Since you're an educator, you should be able to get it at about $54 annually. Additionally, if you don't qualify for the edu pricing, you'll be able to get Office 365 Personal at $69 annually sometime this spring. That new SKU has a limitation of one PC or Mac as well as a single tablet. I still think iWork is a better deal because it isn't hindered by being a subscription.
Thanks. That's a little better, but it's still a lot of money once a few years goes by. As you said, iWork is a better deal. And when it comes to real word processing, I really don't use an iPad anyway. I need the feel of a traditional keyboard for that.
