It runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.

  1. If OpenOrifice.Org could open iWork docs (keynote, pages, numbers) it’d be such a fantastic intermediary that it’d become overwhelmingly rich and famous overnight. Turning up somewhere with a Keynote or Pages doc only to find there’s not only no Mac with iWork on, but that there’s also no Mac, will no longer be a complete waste of everyone’s time and an early journey home.
