TechnoBuffalo: Follow me on twitter: Here is a quick review and demo of Office 2008 for Mac. Thanks for watchin. In 2010 I purchased Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. The part number on the software is 731-02001. Just recently I purchased a new Macbook pro which does not have a cd drive. I am hoping that there is a way to download the Microsoft Office 2008 edition for the Mac through the internet using my product ID number.

Office 2008 combines Microsoft Word for Mac, Microsoft PowerPoint for Mac, Microsoft Excel for Mac, Microsoft Entourage for Mac, and Microsoft Messenger for Mac and lets you easily create high-impact documents and seamlessly share your ideas with others, whether they are on the Mac or Windows platform. What's New in Office for Mac? I have Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac version 12.1.0 and am trying to download the update 12.2.0 or later.

Microsoft Office 2008 For Mac

Untitled[edit]

I think the wiki article does a darned good job of laying out the extremely important deficits in Office for mac. I wish I'd read it before buying office for mac which is basically useless for me in every respect from crippled Excel, to amazingly crashy word (every minute on most templates!). I've switched to Fusion running office for Windows - so MS win this round. It's clear that MS have fired a shot across Apple's bows with this. Rather sad, and I'm afraid for MS that it gives Open Office a hell of a leg up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.246.252.57 (talk) 06:53, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Criticism[edit]

Who complained about Office for Mac not having a Ribbon? From the screenshots, it looks like it has rather ribbonish UI elements. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.10.253.10 (talk) 07:52, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

compatibility??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.101.77.131 (talk) 13:47, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

This criticism section is a joke. Too long, much of it irrelevant. Wikipedia is not a place to review software. And the fact that it doesn't have ribbon is not a valid criticism without explanation as too why the ribbon is better than the standard mac toolbar and who really gives a crap anyway.79.67.217.192 (talk) 13:24, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Also as stated on the Microsoft support site the picture issue has been resolved. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=11507298.114.49.74 (talk) 04:10, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I strongly recommend anyone who'd like to take a stab at being more objective and more willing to find sources, add something about how this products interface is completely different than other Office products. I got it home and found that it was difficult to navigate. It appears as tho the old Microsoft software engineering principals of at least three ways to do everything, with those ways taken from the most successful previous products including competitors, have been abandoned entirely? ... Or, perhaps Microsoft's success has become its own enemy, and the reason Office 2008 has a lot of the clumsiness of Open Office is that there is no competition to rip off anymore.. and the reason its hard to use is that they finally dropped support for some previous, different competitors method of use? I don't know.. what I do know is that I really, really, really don't like this product at all.

The other thing that really pisses me off is that the only thing that older versions of Excel had that wasn't supported in Open Office, was the VB support. With VB eliminated, MS Excel would have made files that Open Office would always be able to open. Except, they switched the entire default file format to something else entirely (xlsx) that doesn't work with anything, and even leaves many versions of Excel in the dark. (Likewise, there is no Wordpad for .docx ... and the plaintext isn't even visible in docx!). So, people are going to have to buy Excel 2008 for only one reason: Just to open and work with files sent to them by other people with Excel 2008. Too bad they won't be able to open and work with any of the files made by advanced users of Excel 2003, just like Excel 2008 can't open any of the spreadsheets I made in an engineering class a few years ago that used any VB at all. Oh well? Zaphraud (talk) 19:16, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
