        Comments about Microsoft Office 2008 For Mac Home And Student Edition:

        After divorcing myself from the PC realm with my new 27 inch iMac, I still needed a bridge to my company's MS Office tools. The Home and Student edition seemed like it would deliver enough applications to allow me to continue work at the home computer over weekends and at night. It does, barely. The installation and application are great. Office for Mac upgrades and updates itself and this is useful because I consider it opens a potential security loophole on my iMac. It provides almost invisible security certificates and keys to handle that issue and allows you accept them or question them when MS wants to send you something on your Mac. For home and Student use, this is a powerful tool, priced competitively to iWorks. Clearly, MS has made a dedicated attempt to provide Office users with a smart and fast solution for their work on the Mac. And the MS website backs this up. To enable a connection to my office server, where my production is stored, I had to go to the MS site and download the Terminal Server Client. This was easy and the application gives me a lot of control over the RDC preferences-more so than on a typical PC to PC/server remote session. I could use a few more tools such as more sophisticated templates and a light version of Microsoft Project, but the quality and value of this product is very good overall. ABT got this in my hands within a few days of my decision to cash in some credit card points and redeem them for the software. ABT rocked on this deal and I love not paying tax. I'll repeat that for you if you want. If you need to communicate with the PC world and want to do so from your Mac, and do it in style and with ease, load a copy of Office for Mac on your machine and you'll be surprised at the edge it gives you.
