iWork is the number 2 office suite in the US

According to this Cnet report, Apple's iWork was the No. 2 in 2005 in U.S. retail sales with 2.7 percent unit share, beating Corel's WordPerfect Office of 1.6 percent share.

Microsoft maintained nearly 95 percent of unit sales last year. Despite the small percentage of Mac units, iWork's success was surprising.

Corel used to claim WordPerfect Office as "the world's leading alternative to Microsoft Office", hinting as the number two office suite.
