Microsoft office for mac is a completely different version from the office for windows because it is a version which is totally based on the Microsoft Office productivity suite for mac os x. This Microsoft office for mac is one of the best and successors of 2011 and it is followed by the Microsoft office for mac of 2007.
In many ways, what you actually pay for when you legally purchase a copy of Microsoft Office is the product key (sometimes referred to as a CD key or key code, or incorrectly as the serial number. This unique number is required during the installation of Microsoft office os. So, even if you did find an OS Office download, you would still need a valid OS product key to install and use Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.
Earlier all the six versions of Microsoft Office 2011 when they were launched they were only supposed to launch these all in the USD prices and then after they used to launch in the Indian market in the currency of the Indian rupees. In the month of September and in the year of 2006 the USD prices of Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac was released by certain retail channels of the internet as well as on the radio. And all these six variants of Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac were downloaded from the various Microsoft market places. And in the retail shop, they were providing in the low-cost because all retailers sold Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac service pack 1 and provided the facility of upgrading to a higher version of Service Pack using software updates.
At this time, the only legal way of obtaining a Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac is from a legal purchase of the operating system. Contact Microsoft for a replacement Microsoft Office of Mac Setup CD, assuming you can show proof of purchase. If you own a major-brand MacBook Air and MacBook pro you could also have luck contacting them directly for a replacement Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.
The best benefit all versions of Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac is that it is the best operating system to help and secure your MacBook, your data, and your family from programs that contain viruses and other harmful code that can cause your MacBook to perform incorrectly and cause damage to data and corruption. More benefits of using Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac includes Instant Search, Complete MacBook Backup and Restore, organize support including area join, and the Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac SuperFetch program that stores essential programs in the RAM so that it becomes easier to access them when required on time.
Microsoft Office 2011 includes more robust enterprise support and greater feature parity with the Windows edition. Its interface is now more similar to Office 2007 and 2010 for Windows, with the addition of the ribbon Support for visual basic for application macros, has returned after having been dropped in Office 2008. Purchasing the Home Premium version of Office for Mac will not allow telephone support automatically to query any problems with the VBA interface. There are, however, apparently, according to Microsoft Helpdesk, some third-party applications that can address problems with the VBA interface with Office for Mac.
Microsoft hosts secret installation files for Microsoft Office 2011 for Macintosh as well. After pulling almost all other direct downloads, the Office 2011 downloads are among the few remaining ones.
Microsoft has taken down all previous and current download servers (msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net, msft.digitalrivercontent.net, digitalrivercontent.net and drcdn.blob.core.windows.net)! For Office 2011, we were able to find an alternative legitimate download channel.
When starting the installation, you will be provided the choice whether to install the full version of Office 2011 using a product key, or to install a trial edition. If you select the trial edition here, you can evaluate Office 2011 up to 30 days.
Should you want to use Office 2011 permanently, and don't own a product key yet, you can order it from an online retailer such as Amazon or eBay. As with all other Microsoft Office versions, the language of the key purchase has no effect on the activation. It can activate all language editions. Here are some purchase links:
Co-authoring allows you to save time and simplify your work by allowing you to edit the same Word document or PowerPoint presentation at the same time as others in different locations who are using Office 2011 on a Mac or Office 2010 on Windows. (Co-authoring requires Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 for enterprise use, or a free Windows Live ID for personal use, to save and access files via Windows Live SkyDrive.)
Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 offers a solid update to the Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and the other members of the productivity suite. Though the latest package is still not on par with the Windows version (you get only the four main programs--a big difference when you consider the Windows version has 10), Microsoft made a big leap with this latest version for the Mac in several other ways. Not only has it nearly reached feature parity (and cross compatibility) with the Mac counterparts to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, but it has finally added Outlook, the e-mail and scheduling client Mac business fans have been clamoring for for years.
Once we dug deep into the feature set of Office 2011 for Mac, we saw there were several enhancements that made the whole suite better, and some of the niftier tweaks are even Mac-exclusive. Certainly many Mac users will look first at Apple's iWork for a productivity suite, and it is a great office suite in its own right. But if you work with primarily Windows users who use Office, it's tough to beat the automatic compatibility of using the same programs. Add the ease of compatibility with a strong feature set across the entire suite and you have a desktop office package that's almost a must-have in both large and small businesses, and even home productivity settings.
All of the new tweaks to the interface and each of the apps in the suite make Office 2011 for Mac a great option, but with the rise of cloud-based computing and online office suites like Google Docs, we wonder how long the big desktop apps like Office will remain on top. This latest Office client for Mac is definitely a solid offering, but how long can Microsoft hold on to its dominance?
Office 2011 for Mac editions We reviewed Office 2011 Home and Business, which costs $199 for a single install or $279 for three installs if you want to put it on three computers at home or work. This suite includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. If you don't need a business-level desktop e-mail client, you should opt for the Home and Student version (at $119 for a single install and $149 for three installs), which includes just Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Unfortunately, there is no upgrade pricing for Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac because Microsoft found that most people buy Office when they buy a new computer and there was little interest in carrying upgrades at retail outlets.
Setup The installation for Office 2011 for Mac is quite painless. Just like any other software, you'll be asked for permission to make changes to your system, then it's only about 10 minutes install time (depending on the speed of your Mac). Like a lot of software these days, you'll need to have at least Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard to use all the features in the Office 2011 suite.
Interface The Ribbon has returned as the unifying interface component across all the apps in the suite. Though Microsoft has met some resistance from users on both platforms for this particular feature, we think once people get used to the flexibility of the Ribbon it will save them an enormous amount of time. Rather than digging through menus and scrolling through palettes, the Ribbon uses tabs that display commands relevant to a given task. As an example, clicking on an image in Word, PowerPoint, or Excel will change the tabs in the Ribbon to image-related tasks so you can make changes quickly without having to search through menus. If you still just can't get used to the Ribbon, in Office 2011 for Mac, you can turn it off and use regular drop-down menus (an option that several Windows users probably wish they had). Still, we recommend taking the time to learn the Ribbon as an investment that will save you more time in the future. 2b1af7f3a8
