My friend is concerned before she purchases the bundle @ the Mac store to download because there are many poor reviews she has read.

Steven or anyone have concerns & or other software to replace office?

Could you try and ask your question again -- I don't know what the issue is. Are asking about an alternative to Microsoft Office? If yes, what are you going to be doing? i.e. what file formats do you want to read? What formats do you want to create?

What reviews are you talking about? i.e. give us a reference please.

In case this happens to address your concerns -- I have Office 2011 on my Mountain Lion Macs and it runs just fine.

Office 2008 is fine in ML as well... Thought I was going to be forced into a decision to move up or out, no need...

You've lost me. If you're referring to the Mac App Store, so far as I know they don't sell any bundles.

Does your friend specifically need Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint? Or does she just need a word processor and/or a spreadsheet and/or a presentation program?

Depending on her needs and budget, I might recommend Microsoft Office or LibreOffice or individual apps like Apple's Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.

WE both were running word 2004, but when installing Mountain Lion, it no longer supported that version of word.

So quite simply I chose to purchase the "bundle for ms office" from the app store @ 40.

It clearly states that one needs word for this to function properly, so, the question is as a stand alone does this not work without purchasing the newer version of MS word?

I hope that is clear enough for everyone.

True, ML does not support that version of Microsoft Word.

No this will not work. I went here to finally see what you were talking about. You still need to buy Microsoft Word, or, get Microsoft Office, which includes Word, Excel, etc...

This is not MS Office. This is a description of what it is.

I can see where you might have confused it for the full product.

What you bought was a collection of templates for use with Microsoft Office.

If you really need Microsoft Office, then buy Microsoft Office. If, on the other hand, what you really need is the ability to create & edit text documents, then Apple's Pages might be a better choice. It's much cheaper, and arguably much easier, too.
