I purchased the office for mac 2011 as I had just bought a new computer and wanted to make sure everything would work OK. I know you can download many types of free office software on the internet but I felt that the official microsoft office for mac would work best without any problems.
So far I have not been disappointed. Everything looks and works great.
You get word, powerpoint and excel. Really, it is just office which you use on your PC but it looks and feels like it was always made for mac. Everything is familiar and just easy to use.
One thing which I wish was included with the software is an uninstall feature. I had installed the software and then realised that I had installed some features which I would not use such as outlook. I then revisited the install page and realised that I could have taken off some features before I had installed the software. I know some people may say that all you have to do is drag the programs that you do not want into the trash but that does not clear all of the files from your computer. I then decided to leave these extras but I know the extras are there taking up space that they did not need to.
Overall I am very impressed with microsoft office for mac 2011. It does say on my box that I will get the next version of office for free with my purchase. I will update once this has happened.
I have just updated my review as I have used office for a few weeks now and have to say about my experience. Everything was working great and then all of a sudden non of the programmes would open. I researched the problem on the internet and realised that I would have to uninstall everything and start again. This would normally be easy but not with office for mac. As there is not an uninstall programme this took ages as the file that needed to be deleted was deep down in the macs files. In the end I had to reset my computer to factory settings and start all again. It seems to be working OK now but it has really made me think that windows could maybe support this programme more to make it more user friendly. Fingers crossed it wont happen again.
