In the meantime, it can only use a single processor to make calculations. The windows version on my old HP notebook does it faster, but I switched to Mac on purpose. If you are using this for business purposes or for school, the Excel product will not be helpful

However I was using the advanced track changes function and it kept freezing on me. I had to keep being careful to save and reopen the application. I was not happy about this as I do a lot of advanced functions in Word and if I have to keep saving, closing, and reopening I'm not going to be using this product for long.

      Looks fine, but performance severely lacking

      On first looks, Office Mac looks fine. All the bells and whistles the Windows version has, so just a slight learning curve. Well done MS! But, after using th On first looks, Office Mac looks fine. All the bells and whistles the Windows version has, so just a slight learning curve. Well done MS! But, after using the Word / Excel, it shows that the underlying architecture is bad. Excel is limited to using one core of the CPU, meaning even the smallest of calculations (or scrolling for that matter) is slow, really slow. Even on relative small sheets ... Scrolling performance on Word / PPT is comparable.

      Is this software intentionally antagonizing?

      I just want to make an appointment with a co-worker, and I can't on the Mac interface. It works fine on Windows. Repeated exchanges with customer support have I just want to make an appointment with a co-worker, and I can't on the Mac interface. It works fine on Windows. Repeated exchanges with customer support have been of little use. Actually I should say "of no use". Microsoft Office should have been abandoned a long time ago. It's simply terrible compared today's much better and less expensive alternatives. I am forced to use it because I have no alternative at work. What a first-world nightmare.

It doesn't work, MS will do nothing about it (after 30 days) and you're stuck with something you can't use. Editing is a joke, saving a doc is useless and unless you enjoy the SPOD you get to watch for hours and the crash your system may sustain...well, you get the idea. Learn Pages, it's more powerful and better in the long run.

      Useless

      Still no multi-core support 10 years after it appeared in the PC version. And the VBA editor in 2016 is even worse than the one in 2011. Microsoft have somehow Still no multi-core support 10 years after it appeared in the PC version. And the VBA editor in 2016 is even worse than the one in 2011. Microsoft have somehow managed to make what was always a gloriously substandard product even worse. You've got to hand it to them for that, I suppose.
