Microsoft details its compatibility efforts in Ofiice 2011


Microsoft detail their commitment to the Mac by showing the latest update to Microsoft Office for the Mac – Office 2011. 
Not that I use Office much now, because there are so many alternatives available, but if you need to share documents or stay compatible with a PC-based workplace then it pays to have the official mac version of Office.

Hang on though, I thought:

Macs don’t work as well at work or at school. If most of the computers in your office or school run Windows you may find it harder to get things done with a Mac.
Sharing documents and spreadsheets – sharing files with PC users can be tricky. Your documents might not look right and your spreadsheets might not calculate correctly.

From Microsoft’s own website of course.

The late and very great Douglas Adams wrote, “it’s not just that the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing, the right hand doesn’t really know either.”
