I was discussing the following today with colleagues at work three of whom are Mac owners like myself - word processing email applications etc. We all agreed that for productive office workflow whether it be in the office or a home office, MS Office for Mac is by far the best option. I think that Office for Mac 2011 Business edition is a really good product. I have always liked it on the Windows side but 2008 for the Mac wasn't their best effort. However, the 2011 version is very good and so is Outlook email client. I also use Open Office for the Mac and for a free product it is hard not to like it. I have tried many times to like Pages but for a productive office enviroment linked with Mac Mail I find it doesn't really cut the mustard. I rate them as follows - 1. Word for Mac 2011 with Outlook 2. Open Office with Thunderbird email client 3. Pages with Mac Mail Browsers - Chrome for speed Firefox for add-ons etc. Safari - don't use it What are others opinions?
