Summary: Office for Mac is very naughty - trouble some. On top of that Office 365 for Mac has many issues. It asks you to verify again and again. Probably it is time to throw away Microsoft Office. We need some thing better.
All Microsoft garbage I tried to escape from with Mac

Summary: Simple, old, glitchy. Just as Microsoft office has always been. You are much better off paying $60 for Numbers, Keynote, and Pages which are apps right from the app store compared to $130 for this. Most of the things Microsoft seems to think we find "handy" are more of a nuisance. For example: I bought a 15' MacBook Pro with retina display for school, and decided it would be a good idea to have Excel, Powerpoint and Word for projects, notes etc.
Summary: This product is an amazing. Before buying it, I read many reviews about it crashing and this of that nature. It hasn't crashed once since I got it and I use it daily for college. It has really helpful note-taking feature that would be perfect for all students. I would just get Microsoft Office for all the people out there debating. Most professors prefer it, and it is an overall amazing word-processing program.
After skipping the 2008 version, I was overdue. Loving this solid version!

Summary: Word 2004 used to always crash at the end of a spell check for me. I had to remember to end the spell check before it got to the last item in the document. Not so with Word 2011. I have had no problems with any apps in the Office 2011 Suite. Honestly, though, for the amount that I use it, I really should just force myself to use iWork. Pages is a more elegant and simple app for my uses. Office is more than most people need, it just sells out of sheer momentum.
Summary: I originally bought this for my iMac, but ended up installing it on my macbook, and then later on my macbook pro when I upgraded to that, and it has worked just fine on all 3 computers. I took Chinese in college and word had no problem with the Chinese characters at all. There's not much else to say - word, powerpoint and excel all are basically the same as they always have been with just a few new tweaks and improvements. I'd definitely recommend to anyone.
Summary: Software works as it's supposed to but..... The installation itself is a travesty of misinformation, confusion, and duplication. Could have been done in minutes if not but for the stupid/inaccurate instructions. And when completed, I had icons, aps, and folders inserted in four different locations for no apparent reason. Really annoying. Want help?
Summary: I am a college student. I am always doing research papers and presentation, so the Student Edition is vital. I use it everyday, without any crashes. Many choices to manipulate the paper and coming from windows words it was a easy transition.
Summary: As a professional translator, I rely in MS Word more than anything else. But it continually crashes, several times a day. I close all the applications and documents I'm not using, but it doesn't help. It's just exasperating, especially when delivery is urgent. The search box is much less efficient than the now called "search advanced", which was the regular one before and works well, only you need a few steps more now than then.
