    It looks like Microsoft has broken the recent trend of not including Office for Mac on MSDN. It's up now!!!

    My MSDN account doesn't have 2011 (yet) or any other version of Office. I only have Groove, OneNote, Visio, Project, and Access.

    Just finished downloading and installing. Works like a champ. You get 10 keys with your MSDN account as well.

    I am downloading it as we speak :)
    On Technet they give us 5 keys.

    Sadly, it isn't available to members of the Student Alliance program. :(

    Activation?

    Last week, there were rumors that Office 2011 for Mac would require activation. Are those true or false?

    Yes. It does require activation.

    This includes the MSDN version, although as mentioned above you get 10 keys. Presumably each key can be activated on up to 10 computers (that's how most MSDN software works) so that's 100 unique computers all up.

    As a side note, Safari kept crashing when I tried to download this yesterday (it'd get to ~60% complete then just crash). I ended up having to download using Firefox. Also, for some reason the ISO file contains a DMG file. If you're going to burn to DVD, make sure that you mount the ISO first and then burn the enclosed DMG.

    Interesting information, Nermal. How many keys does the boxed version come with? Would each key that comes with the boxed version be able to be activated on up to 10 computers?

    I don't know about the boxed version. Normally they have nowhere near 10 activations though.

    Office for Mac available on TechNet & MSDN

    Just noticed that Office 2011 for Mac is available on TechNet and MSDN. Historically this has not been the case for Mac software so I thought I would post.

    I'm downloading now :D

    More information can be found on my blog: http://bit.ly/cnF1OX

    UPDATE - Thanks for merging. In my excitement I didn't see this previous thread.
