    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.

    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.

The entire experience feels cumbersome beyond belief. Features are hidden behind vague icons and making precise formatting changes is like riding a bull - you never know which way it's going to throw you.

    Microsoft needs to update this atrocity FAST.

    1) Outlook does not use Word as its editor. Therefore, FORMAT PAINT does not exist, spellcheck is poor, read receipts aren't available, and there are very limited features. The lack of format paint is a major time thief.
    2) Outlook is terribly bugged. If I send an email in 12 font, the receiver will always see it as 9.5 font, which is nearly unreadable unless you have a microscope, which is fine if the receiver is a scientist. If I send something in 16 font, it shows up as 13 to the receiver. Makes absolutely no sense.
    3) On multiple occasions, I sent emails using one font, color, and size. I've checked my outbox and it looks normal. Yet, the receiver will see several font sizes, multiple colors, and some unreadable text. This makes me look terribly unprofessional, as I'm sure most readers assume it was a user error and not an Apple/Microsoft glitch.
    4) In the PC version, the entire email remains intact if you respond from your navigation pane. However, in the Mac version, responding from the navigation pane will delete most of the previous conversation. You must fully open the email and respond if you want the integrity of the previous communication to remain.
    5) Sometimes you will write an email and then the font automatically changes colors and size. Press delete and it goes back to normal, but press another button and it glitches again. Another stupid time thief.
    5) OneNote is unavailable on Mac.
    6) Product updates are few and far between.
    7) Salesforce does not integrate with Office for Mac. On a PC, an email will immediately save to the Salesforce platform. On a Mac, users must manually input this data. I've checked with Salesforce and they've confirmed this is the case.

    The list goes on and on. The product is terrible. I am abandoning Mac for these reasons alone. I love my Mac, but flawed emails, which were not my fault, are enough to switch. I cannot afford to lose potential business from communication glitches. Unless Microsoft and Apple fix these problems, you should just get a PC.
