Office for Mac 2011 is built to keep up with you and your work. Across the suite, applications launch faster and are ready to get to work when you are. Reorder Objects enables the rearrangement of layers of graphics in Word or PowerPoint with a stunning interactive interface. Full-Screen View in Word allows you to focus on your work, and easy-to-build visuals and graphics underscore ideas and data to make your reports and presentations pop. And you can rely on your documents looking and behaving as you designed them—whether they are viewed on a Mac or a PC. Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Student 2011 does not include Outlook for Mac 2011.
Improved after recent update.
Pros: This is as close to MS Office for Windows as you can get on a Mac. Excel is the highlight of the suite. All of features feel familiar and work well. Word is intuitive and friendly to use. Some of the differences between this version and Windows are easy to maneuver and learn.
Cons: There are still some incompatibilities between this and Windows version. For example, I wrote a lengthy report using Cambria font and sent it to myself and opened it with gmail at work. I was running close to the deadline, so I just attached it and sent it to a windows user. I later found out that some of the characters didn't make it, including some apostrophes.
Other Thoughts: It's wise to double check your document in a Windows version if the intended audience is Windows users. BTW, the recent update seems to have fixed this. The anomaly I experienced was from the Mac Office version of Cambria font to Windows version of Word.
