I haven’t tested Mavericks yet, but this news about iWork is rather depressing.

We Mac power users have been complaining about the “dumbing down” trend in computing that the mobile era has ushered in. Now it’s definitely come to hurt us in a big way. It’s as if the entire iWork team of engineers has been replaced by iOS specialists with little or no interest in the needs of “prosumers” and the like.

I can’t believe I’m going to say this but – I believe there is a market for formatting documents (to be printed) in a professional environment. It’s 2013 and there is no good scriptable application that does this on the Mac.
