Microsoft Office X for Mac

CNET
16 November 2001
  • Summary: If you've been waiting for a good reason to purchase Mac OS X, Office X is it. But if you're happy with both Office 2001 and OS 9, you won't find enough improvements to justify the $299 upgrade price.
  • Pros: Uses Aqua features and adheres to Mac OS X standards; lets you customize key commands in Excel and select multiple, discontinuous text blocks in Word; Entourage interface is easier to navigate.
  • Cons: Expensive upgrade; applies antialiasing sporadically, causing some ragged text; doesn't sync directly with Palm OS devices; Word and Excel don't read Microsoft Access files.
