    Word and Excel 11 work just fine.
    Outlook is still a half baked product compared to it PC platform. CONSIDERABLY more stable on the PC side if not faster.

    I tried to force myself to love Outlook OSX 2011 but today, just loaded up Outlook on my Fusion VM and what a night and day difference....

    okay, i just got office 2011 and im coming from office 2007 or whatever on the pc. Id say its pretty good, not great, but my friends in class with the last MAC Office say its really great looking. Thats all I can say, check my sig if anyone is interested in a license.

    fwiw, in more detail, this is connected to a MS Exchange Server...
    While this may not be accurate, moving 7000 mail items took about 10 hrs...
    When I did the same function on the PC variant (simply moving 7K mail items to a subfolder) (mail in the same information store), it was a matter of minutes - which I expected since it's already sitting on the box. And this 1 function is not grossly exxagerated...

    There used to be a Office OSX developer roaming these boards.
    I'd like to hear the reasoning on this....
