Tonight I decided to install iWork ’08 on my Mac mini.
I put the distribution disk in the drive and follow the directions. After all is done I click on Pages icon in Applications. Three choices screen appear, tour, buy, try. I click on tour. The screen changes to usual Apple presentation scheme, total black background and white apple in the middle. That it is. Dead. No key, mouse or anything would make it move. Power button held for a moment did kill it.

After reboot and a glass of wine with some mozzarella and dry baguette, I try again – click on the tour in the three choices screen. Same black, dead screen with an apple. Now what? I am ready to give it a whack this time, but wait, if I punish the Apple, I will have to go back to SuSE that had been killed by Novel. This is not good.

Another reboot, wine, mozzarella and some green olives and we have a plan. Try the software update. Yep, there are updates for all three components of iWork ’08. Install the update, more wine and water. This time we are going to press on “try” instead of taking a hike with a black screen. After obligatory legal button presses it all goes slooooooow. I can not even select anything from the dock. My Mac has been reduced to the standard WIntel. I can not take it anymore! I will donate my Mac mini to the garbage man. That is it!
