1.0 out of 5 stars It does not just suck December 16, 2011
I've been using office for mac 2011 for a few weeks, and it's a bug infested piece of junk. It crashes. It does strange, buggy, unpredictable things, like suddenly refusing to link to a workbook, or no longer allowing me to copy figures. Things that take time, and require me to invent pointless workarounds.

I like to customize my toolbar to include frequently used commands. Every time Excel crashes or restarts, it loses my settings. And it likes to crash.

It is also an incredibly sluggish program. I can watch and wait as Excel completes basic calculations. (I've got a core 2 duo laptop with 4 GB of RAM--it doesn't seem as though addition should be challenging.) Several of my colleagues have given up on it because it's so slow. Instead, they prefer to use Excel 2001 (!), which wasn't even written for the Intel processors, and runs via an emulator.

This is an appalling piece of junk that should not have been released until it was cleaned up. If there were a viable alternative, we would switch to it. Open Office and Apple's Numbers lack some of the more advanced features we need, but if you have more basic needs, I'd recommend you check out the alternatives, first.

The software works as it should. It is a bit slow because the code is dirty, but it works and has more functionality than pages for certain tasks. I still prefer Pages for general spreadsheet work, and Excel for pivot tables and larger datasets. Minitab is the best but does not work on a mac without parallels.

The main drawback, as many of you know from dealing with Microsoft, is their inability to sell you what you want without loading your computer up with useless junk. They might as well be named MicroSpam... with a slogan like "spamming the world one software sale at a time" thanks MicroSpam!

1.0 out of 5 stars Seems Excel Keeps Getting Worse September 26, 2011
I have a difficult time understanding how every successive version of excel is worse than the previous. There are so many annoying glitches in this version that I wonder how much time they even spent testing. I'm not just some Apple fanboy either. I thought Excel 2003 for windows was pretty good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excel for 2011? How about 1911? October 16, 2011
I have used excel a bit before, mainly at work on a windows computer. It's not that great. You'd think by 2011 it would be a lot easier to make a simple graph and format it for apa/mla guidelines. But no, figuring it out is like taking an extended quest, when there are other princesses to save, and other papers due. It's irritating and a time waster. Here we have the mac version. It's worse, it's like pulling teeth! If you've figured out how to use the new excel, you will have to relearn a lot of it for the mac version, and it's supposed to be the same program! The simplest things will leave you frustrated. Be sure to have the local therapist on call.

3.0 out of 5 stars Installation Issues June 8, 2011
I'm giving this item only 3 stars due to installation issues:

I have Office 2008 on my Intel Mac Mini but decided to upgrade Excel to the 2011 version, to have certain Excel features that 2008 does not have.

Imagine my surprise when the Excel installation disk would not load on my Mac Mini's DVD drive. Just clicked and clicked and then spit the disk back out. (To check the DVD drive I tried loading a different disk in my Mac Mini's DVD drive and the drive was working just fine.)

The Excel installation disk was fresh out of a sealed retail package, it was a brand new disk and it looked fine, no scratches, dust or anything.

I then had the same issues trying to get the disk to load in my MacBook Pro but finally after about 4 tries with it spitting the disk back out, it did load. So then I used Remote DVD to install it on the Mini. Took a little time over the wireless network, but it did install and now it's working fine on my Mini.

I have since read of several others who had problems getting their Mac to read the Office 2011 disk. Some suggestions have been to clean the DVD drive, one suggestion was to insert the disk while holding the MacBook Pro upside down (which seemed to work for several people--go figure that one!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly good- probably better April 4, 2013
I installed (from an online download, not from the CD) MS Office for MAC 2011 on my 2008 Mac Book Pro running Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.8). Absolutely no problems. It has run fine for over two weeks without crashing or having any bugs in any operation / function that I have used. I use it primarily for accounting spreadsheets; including simple bar and pie charts (they also work well in the 2011 product). I found the new ribbon/toolbar layout temporarily confusing until I sorted it out, then concluded it was an improvement over Office for Mac 2008. I, too, much preferred Windows version of MS-Office 2003 over Windows Office 2007 or newer versions, but the 2003 product is history and besides it never was adapted in-kind to the OS X platform (Office 2004 for Mac was far from being "compatible"). Like any software, once you use it repeatedly for awhile it becomes as easy, or almost as easy, or in some cases even easier to use than the previous version with which you were familiar.
It pays to read the professional reviews about the product to see if there are any compatibility issues with earlier versions that can affect the use of special features/functions/formatting that you tend to use in your own work. If you are the average everyday spreadsheet user like me, this version is just fine.
