    I was using Excel for my personal budget; however, once I switch to using all Macs, I switched to using numbers. Main reason is that I can leave the spreadsheet open on my iMac and I can still edit it, while away from my house, on my iPhone and it will automatically update it on my iMac.

    With excel, I can't do it (i tried but no go). It says that it is open already and I can't edit it.

    Unless I get a job that requires me to have excel at home, I'm sticking with iWorks.

    That's why I prefer iWork as well. I can pick up where I left off on other devices

    Prefer iWork - unfortunately the lack of pivot tables is a bit of a let down in Numbers (although I get around this with LibreOffice).

    Still, for they type of work I do - LaTex is best for me. The latex editor, Texpad is absolutely great on OS X and iOS.

    When I got my MacBook, I had it set up to run Windows and Office for school... Once I started using iWork apps, Office started collecting virtual dust. This thread made me remember that I even had it. So I actually just deleted my Windows partition before finishing this post.

    to be honest, MicroSoft Office is the only thing MS does better than Apple

    I prefer office. As much as I like iWork, office is more familiar.

    I prefer Microsoft Office as it has the best layout of any Office Suite, but find myself using Google Docs more often as its cloud-based and because moving your documents into folders on Google Drive doesn't mess with Google Docs unlike Office with OneDrive

    I don't really use iWork. I use M$ Office because that's what we have at work but I actually prefer LibreOffice.

    I can’t stand Microsoft office these days. It’s interface is so “Fisher-price” and takes up so much more real estate. It makes it difficult to use since I end up having to scroll around all over the screen to get anywhere. Just my opinion. Used to love Microsoft on my computer before the new interface.

    You might want the interface tweaks to have the compact ribbon or tool bar.

    For the rest, I use Office but will qualify it as Office 365 that has capability and scale beyond all the other choices. There are many good choices out there. Apple's free stuff works fine. Professionally I administer G Suite as well as Office 365 and Azure. G Suite works but the feature set, support and overall capabilities are no where in same league.

    More and more Teams is my actual interface or start. Now through January both task types and some Outlook features are coming to that Teams single pane of glass. Good stuff for a lot of people but probably not if your name is Slack.
