or with upgrading to Snow Leopard, but does have everything to do with the trial period for Microsoft Office expiring.
Microsoft do not give away full versions of their Office suite, on Windows or Mac, and what you had was a 30 trial of the software.
The clock starts the first time you actually launch one of the elements of MS Office.
iWork is a fair substitute for Office, at a fair price.
There are also a couple of substitutes for Office like, Open Office and Neo Office (both free)
I updated my iMac with Snow Leopard a little while back (2-3 months) and now I am being prompted to buy iWork as it tells me my trial period is over? What is going on? When I upgraded why did I lose the following:
Word, Excel, Power-Point , etc?
I was told my iMac was the first to have the Intel Chip, bought right before new aluminum iMacs came out.
Model: iMac 5,1
Processor: 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
1 processor, 2 cores
Thanks for any help.
