5.0 out of 5 stars Should you order the disk or download? January 14, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
There has been enough written about using Microsoft's office apps versus Apple's on the iMac. I'll not rehash that here. I need every feature I can get my hands on so I checked Amazon today for the best price on Office 2011 for the Mac. Given that I only have one Mac in the house I was happy to see I could save a few bucks on the 1 license/1 mac version.

Then I saw the download version available and wondered if I should do that or wait the two days for the disks. The item description said it could take from 1 hour and 30 minutes to 5 hours to download. One of the reviewers said the download didn't work. I thought I'd take the risk anyway given I have all the latest hardware and software, fast cable internet connection, a little bit of tech knowledge, trust Amazon to take care of its customers, and am increasingly enjoying the new world of online availability of everything without having to store disks.

So here's my take: It took me 8 minutes to download the software and 4 minutes to install it. Then I had to get back on Amazon for the software key, as you need to quit Safari to finish the install. Upon starting the software it checked for updates and I needed to install service pack 1 which took another couple of minutes. All in all the process was completely error free and under 20 minutes. It doesn't get any better than this! Highly recommend!

The only reason I might reconsider the digital download is if I was unsure about my internet or hardware/software setup. But if that was the case, then I wouldn't be looking at Office 2011 anyway, as it might not work well on my setup anyway. The thing people need to remember is that upgrading necessitates upgrading -- the best way to keep your old hardware is to keep your old software, but when you want the latest and greatest, be prepared for the costs for all the latest to go with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying June 24, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
This software reminds me of why I recently gave up the PC and moved to the Mac.

All I wanted for work was Word and Excel. I am a pretty advanced user and did not want to start experimenting with Mac productivity suites. So I just decided to buy this, the cheapest version of Office I could find and download onto my 2012 MacBook Air.

Now I may have missed the avoid bloatware button when I installed this software but I was very annoyed to see completely unnecessary garbage installed on my computer without my permission. Microsoft Instant Messenger, a dozen tiny programs I am never going to use. Microsoft even had the audacity to install an Outlook icon on my task tray. Since this package does not come with Outlook I was intrigued (as well as annoyed that so many icons had just been installed) so I clicked it. Nothing but a message telling me I had to buy Outlook if I wanted to use it. Seriously? One of the biggest software companies in the world using adware like a cheap shareware program?

It's especially annoying to have unnecessary junk like that on a machine with only 256Gb of hard drive space. So consider that when installing, maybe there is an option to be more selective and I skipped over it by mistake.

So annoying hard drive wasting bloatware aside, it's Office, just like I'm used to. The interface has changed some, but it seems perfectly usable for my needs. I've not used it enough to establish if there is any major flaws in it so far, I guess time will tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I went back to MS Office January 5, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Downloaded in 38 minutes for me. MacBook Pro. Installed, including downloading/installing Office updates, up and running 20 minutes later. This 2011 Office will take some learning. Got fed up with IWorks. So many things you can't do in IWorks. Can't open IWorks document in Word. Not totally surprised. But I can transfer Word/Excel/PP docs from my old Mac.

The download was quick, and within 20 minutes I was using Excel. I looked at the comments before purchasing, and 2 were bad and 3 were good. This worked great for me... very smooth. I recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars convenient June 9, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I like the convenience of a digital download along with the fact that I can re-download it at any time through amazon services. Why didn't someone think of this earlier? It eliminates the risk of someone losing the CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good... January 13, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
If you've been working in an office environment for years and years and decide to buy a Mac for home use...it can be a bit frustrating. Do you really want to re-learn something as simple as a document? Did not care for Mac word processor at all. I want to open a new doc and get it done without reformatting every little thing to get it the way I want it to look. I'm sure the Mac editor is just fine but not for folks who've been using windows for 10+ years. Got old excel files? Want to open them in a Mac? What are you going to do? This is worth the 90 bucks to regain familiarity and productivity. From download to updates to opening existing files is about 45 minutes with a good internet connection. If my Mac starts misbehaving I'll come back and whine but for now, all my old files open just fine and look the way they should. I'm a happy camper...

Okay, so this is a serious review of the features and functionality of this product. In order for this software to be successful (actually applicalble rules for any software, I think) these criteria need met;
1) Does Office 11 on my Mac work almost seamlessly with documents created on my or another's PC in that systems Office software?
2) does the software take advantage of the system coding and structure (in this case Mac OS X) to deliver functional, user friendly results?
3) all else failing, is the software customizable to a large enough degree that it will be able to accomplish the required tasks (tasks natively supported on other versions of the same software) essential for your or your business's/organization's needs?
4) and lastly, is the software accessible, i.e. is it easy enough to use or train yourself to use functionally.

Sadly, 1 & 2 are not universally true, 3 is a 'it depends' and 4 - well it has a ton of features and that requires work to get a handle on, and the structure is a little more Mac specific than Windows specific (which I can't argue with) so it takes some work and a little bit of relearning some tasks but this is just a necessity and there is good documentation out there, so I don't score any points against it for 4.

Some background on my uses of the program. I have a small business. Part of my taskings and services offer me up as a linguist where I use multiple languages, some in right-to-left Arabic and/or Asian scripting as well as standard European and Cyrilic writing styles.
