It would have been great to use icWord; unfortunately, I never got that far. I intended to use it on a computer running MacOS 7.5.5 (a Quadra 660, with 36 mb of RAM), but the application quit before I could do anything. Then I tried it, for form's sake, on a PowerBook running 8.0. Same problem. What's worse: the creator actually made his "help" file so it can open ONLY INSIDE icWord. There may be an excellent troubleshooting guide in there somewhere; unfortunately, anyone with these problems will never see it. This neat little "feature" made getting help impossible.

Crapware. Simple Word document = TexEdit Mediocre Word document = AppleWorks Nasty Word document = Pages (iWork) In fact, Pages can Open AND Export Word documents quite nicely. Oh, and try posting a screen shot that isn't ancient. It's called Mac OS X, you may have heard of it.

Does anyone know if there's ANYTHING out there that will open a Word doc and keep the track changes? Doesn't have to be freeware. Just need to keep the track changes somehow.

I bought it, and I was very unimpressed. A client of mine uses this for opening advertisements for turning into PDFs and placing them in a newsletter, and success with icWord has been very unpredictable. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Very often, image files do not appear properly and some formatting is lost, although all of the text usually does come through in its entirety. Usually, some words get bumped on to the next page or something small like that -- not a big deal for word processing documents. For quickly turning word processing documents into AppleWorks-readable files, icWord is very quick and easy. However, if maintaining exactly correct positioning and format is vital, it is not quite up to the job. If you just need to get text and images out of a Word doc occasionally, use NeoOffice/J and a little copy-and-paste action.

Excellent-who needs Word when this is available for the price of a printer cartridge.

The SW opened all the word attachments I got. I enjoy it very much. And for $19.95 I do not have to buy Word. I love it.
