    Thank you Tito for the link. I deleted my .dmg file by mistake and wanted it on my new Mountain Lion hackintosh I just finished working and debugged. OS X sure is nice.

    I'm not sure what you mean by perfect, but Mountain Lion wouldn't open my .XML file properly and has trouble with all Office files I've tested. It was just raw unformatted data.

    Maybe iWorks will do better, but it requires another purchase and I already have Office 2011 Home & Business.

    The Office package that Apple make is called iWork and consists of Pages, Keynote and Numbers. In order, it's Apple's version of Word, PowerPoint and Excel. iWork is compatible with Microsoft Office.

    They cost $20 each in the Mac App Store. They do not come pre-installed on a Mac as standard unless you specify it and pay for it in advance.
