Microsoft Details Office for Mac, Includes Exchange

Microsoft detailed Office for Mac 2011 at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco yesterday and revealed that the new Office suite would be available in time for the holidays.

This particular release of Office for Mac will, for the first time in 10 years, include Microsoft Outlook. Outlook will replace the much disliked Entourage, a client which does not offer Exchange support.

    Apple lost its chance for big market share gains when Vista was turning user's towards Mac's. They simply did not provide a cheap enough Mac for many. Even though Windows was able to run on a Mac the extra expense was not worth it. You can still buy a PC for much less then a Apple. You can argue quality all day long. But for many its still just about price.

    A little late with the mail client there Microsoft. Entourage was such a steaming pile of crap that no one really used it and now Snow Leopard's native iMail client has exchange support. I will welcome non-crappy versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc but you missed the ball big time with Entourage and now it's probably too late.

    It's obvious that MS purposely withheld Outlook for Macs.

    I predict the whole Mac thing will be dead within the next 10 years. Assimilation is imminent.

    Macs are now running on PC hardware, have office and can boot windows. I dont get how you can stand OSX. If I wanted a phone OS, Id buy a phone...

    Resistance is futile!
