Have been playing with office 2011, and it is an interesting comparison with iWork.
Have to say that word is surprisingly good with the ribbon. Nice software. It complements Pages, which is desktop publishing done well.
Excel is excel. Numbers doesn’t come close, unless you just want pretty.
Powerpoint still is the poor man’s choice compared to Keynote, but its getting better. If you’ve not used keynote, you would think it was the best presentation software out there.
Certainly its not the cripple-ware that we had in the previous version. (Office 2008 was the vista of mac office suites).
This one isn’t too bad functionality wise. (The activation still sucks, and it bothers me that they make and activation free version of it that they just won’t sell me)…
