  • Uninstalled it and reinstalled 2008 version

    Buying this was a waste of money and time... I already had the 2008 version of Microsoft Office for Mac, which was much better by Buying this was a waste of money and time... I already had the 2008 version of Microsoft Office for Mac, which was much better by the way. The 2008 version included Entourage (email), and this 2011 version gives the impression it includes Outlook, but it's only the icon, and when you click it prompts you to purchase it separately. Microsoft Word is temperamental and doesn't always give you time to save before crashing. I didn't use PowerPoint or Excel, so I can't comment on those. By the way, why aren't we allowed to purchase Microsoft Word by itself? It would be great to have that option since some of us don't need the other applications... Do yourself a favor and buy iWorks or the 2008 version of Microsoft Office.

    Unfortunately I can't give this product zero stars. If I could I would. Word always crashes on my Mac, not sometimes, or every onc Unfortunately I can't give this product zero stars. If I could I would. Word always crashes on my Mac, not sometimes, or every once in awhile.....always.
    Sage advice: hit the save button frequently or you will lose hours of work. Since I need to edit a lot I have gone back to a cheap PC.

    Being a college student, I use these programs every day and I have had absolutely no issues. I can't speak on this version compare Being a college student, I use these programs every day and I have had absolutely no issues. I can't speak on this version compared to the 2008 version, but the 2011 set up is very effective and can do a ton of things. I have had no problems with crashes or being slow and I would highly recommend to any old PC user turned Mac user, or as even just an upgrade from iwork.

    The iWork suite wipes the floor with this. The Microsoft apps regularly fail to respond, Outlook takes an age to boot up and the The iWork suite wipes the floor with this. The Microsoft apps regularly fail to respond, Outlook takes an age to boot up and the user interface is hideously dated.

    Unfortunately the only reason I still use it is due to third party software only being compatible with powerpoint (Turning Point 5). Otherwise I would bin the lot. Don't waste your money and stick with Apple's in house software.

    Just too unstable to be used on anything serious. Having shifted from the PC world for my academic work I really wanted Office 201 Just too unstable to be used on anything serious. Having shifted from the PC world for my academic work I really wanted Office 2011 to just do what I needed. As others have commented though, the devastating and frequent crashes make it unusable for anything important. Inserting pictures, tables, figures etc seem to be particularly likely to cause a crash which can often corrupt your document beyond recovery.
