Jeff do you know if iWork ‘08 is compatible with Lion?

I better check on Office 2011 and Adobe CS4 too. I use Numbers and InDesign, but my wife is an Affice Officiando.


Office 2008 and Office 2011 should be okay with Lion. 2004 is right out.

From what I read Office 2011 works fine with Lion, but older versions do not. I have not yet found a definitive answer as to CS4. Anyway, I am practicing a lot of self restraint and not downloading and installing Lion until the dust clears.


It is my understanding the Office 2008 will work, but the installer for 2008 will not. So. you would have to have it installed prior to upgrade.


iWork 08 seems to be compatible.

iWork 08 seems to be compatible.


Also from what I am reading CS4 is mostly compatible. I would rather wait for CS6 than go to CS5.5
