Since he is posting in bionet.software, I assume he's interested in software for bioscience. 
In this area, except for molecular biology software, there is unfortunately almost nothing 
available for the Mac.  
Besides, I hate having to choose between Excel and nothing else, between Word and almost 
nothing else. There are some bugs in the Mac-version of MS-office since almost two years. For 
a similar bugs in the PC-version you have a fix in less than two to three weeks, even from MS.
