    Buying this was a waste of money and time... I already had the 2008 version of Microsoft Office for Mac, which was much better by Buying this was a waste of money and time... I already had the 2008 version of Microsoft Office for Mac, which was much better by the way. The 2008 version included Entourage (email), and this 2011 version gives the impression it includes Outlook, but it's only the icon, and when you click it prompts you to purchase it separately. Microsoft Word is temperamental and doesn't always give you time to save before crashing. I didn't use PowerPoint or Excel, so I can't comment on those. By the way, why aren't we allowed to purchase Microsoft Word by itself? It would be great to have that option since some of us don't need the other applications... Do yourself a favor and buy iWorks or the 2008 version of Microsoft Office.

    Sage advice: hit the save button frequently or you will lose hours of work. Since I need to edit a lot I have gone back to a cheap PC.

This product should not even be considered to be able to be used with a Mac computer because it is next to impossible to do so and it be error free. I'm over it completely.

It does not offer a swift use.
    I do not recommend anyone to use it if its one of the main programs you need.
