    Drag the apps to trash? Or use AppZapper or something

    Use the Remove office tools found in:
    Microsoft Office X/Additional Tools/Remove Office

    The App will search for available Version. Check the 2011 Version.

    Keep the 2008 and Wait til October i suppose.

    There was no such tool. :(

    That's why i had a problem. Nevermind, i finally used AppCleaner to remove it and fortunatelly everthing is ok. Back to office 2004 again.

    You can already get office 2011 final.

    What legal source? No one seems to be selling it yet. I know 'alternative 'sources have it, but I have not seen it available for shipping anywhere legit.

    Only for volume purchasers. Not for individual purchases yet.

    I installed this yesterday (legally, from work) and I dont know if I like it at all. I think iWork will suit my needs. I noticed there is no uninstaller.

    I found this link :: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2398768

    Ugh, Microsoft puts crap all over the place.

    I wonder if AppCleaner will clean this up better.

    I shouldn't have to do this...

    Honestly! Would it kill microsoft to write an automator script and keep it in the application folder! :mad:

    Thanks for the link by the way :D, the steps are long as hell (and a pain in the ass), but I feel better knowing that ALL OF OFFICE is gone.

    Beta testing was cool but I still think that I prefer OOo.

    One thing I noticed was after the removal some pages looked funny online. It was due to the removal of some Microsoft Fonts. I just restored my entire fonts folder via Time Machine then all was well.
