After several weeks of fooling around with the new Pages, I can say that I really don't like it. I may get used to it in time, but for the simple writing & letters that I use the word processing part of AppleWorks 6 for, it's far superior to Pages.

The latest version is AppleWorks 6.2.9 which I suppose is the end of the road for this version.

Does Apple plan a 6.3 or are they gonna' let AppleWorks 6 die and keep going with Pages only?

Any rumors???

It will die and get locked away just like this thread.

No rumors just death and there is no reason to be confused. Apple will continue to sell AppleWorks as long as they think they can get away with charging for it. The college I work at still uses it on Macs and PC's.
