Microsoft announced the release of its Office 2011 for Apple Mac. That why many says that Microsoft develops software for Apple. The latest release has new features including the Outlook for the very first time. Office 2011 for Mac has also brought the Office 365 cloud-based services which Windows users are already enjoying since Office 2010.
Eric Wilfrid, general manager of the Microsoft Office for Mac team said:
“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.”
Office 2011 for Mac is available in 13 languages and by next month it will be available in 45 countries.
“Office isn’t just about what runs on a desktop machine or laptop,” Wilfrid said. “Office is an experience that shows up across your computer, on the Web browser, and on your mobile device.”
Wilfrid claimed that three-quarters of all the Apple Mac users have Microsoft Office for Mac installed. He believe these statistics shows the worth of link between Apple and Microsoft.
