Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 is here and the Entourage email client is no longer part of the productivity suite, having been replaced by the all-new Outlook for Mac. Some other notable changes include the introduction of the Ribbon interface, collaborative editing and Office Web Apps.
“As with its predecessors – a big emphasis in developing Office 2011 was listening to and incorporating your feedback,” an admittedly proud Eric Wilfrid, general manager of Office for Mac, wrote in a
blog post announcing the launch
“The team rose to that challenge, and my favorite thing about Office 2011 is just how zippy it is. Whether you are using Office 2011 at work, at school or at home – you’ll notice the improved launch speeds and other performance enhancements as you accomplish your tasks.”
