Office for Mac 2011 Reviewed

Microsoft [MSFT] is about to launch a new version of Office for Mac. It is called Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 and is the first updated version in 3 years.

Early reviews indicate that 2011 is a huge improvement when compared to 2008. AllThingsD describe it as being new, faster and a better version. They also report that when opening documents created in Windows on the Mac that the conversion is far better, although not perfect but still better than the 2008 version with the document rendering closer to the Windows version than it ever has before.

One big feature landing on the Mac this time around is Outlook. This will be a big bonus for companies who use Exchange servers for business as it will now let users more easily integrate with the company Exchange servers to get their Calendar, Email and contacts etc…

Also, if you have purchased Office for Mac 2008 recently, check out the official website as you might be eligible for a free upgrade.
