    Hello,

    I am going to use VMware Fusion 7 on my 13" MacBook Air 4 GB for a windows program I'm using, and in addition to that, I now need Microsoft Office.

    Should I get Office for Mac or run Windows Office using VMware? Is there a reason to choose one over the other?

    Thanks.

    With the open beta of Office for Mac, its reach feature parity and I think all in all, I'd recommend the OS X version.

    I had prefered the Windows version until the public beta hit the streets since that had more features, speed and was overall a better product.

    Good suggestion, and I hope the beta bring Mac Office to feature parity but so far, my experience has been that its mostly a cosmetic update.
