Microsoft releases Office 2011 for Mac with Outlook, cloud support
Well Macfans, it’s happened. Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac has finally shipped. It has a slew of features, including Outlook and cloud support. You know Microsoft loves their clouds.
Eric Wilfrid, general manager of the Microsoft Office for Mac team, said though his company and Apple compete, there are still customers on the Mac platform who need to use Microsoft Office in a Windows-centric world. It’s for that reason that the new Office 2011 is such a hotly anticipated release.
“As someone who works at Microsoft and deals with Apple often, I acknowledge that our companies compete,” Wilfrid said. “Some people choose Windows, and some people choose Mac. That conflict tends to get a lot of attention, but I deal in the reality that there are customers who love their Macs and also love using Office.”
Wilfrid said that three-quarters of all Mac users have Office installed on their machine, a statistic he believes highlights the importance of the relationship between Microsoft and Apple.
