Just like any other software, you'll be asked for permission to make changes to your system, then it's only about 10 minutes install time depending on the speed of your Mac. Like a lot of software these days, you'll need to have at least Mac OS X Interface The Ribbon has returned as the unifying interface component across all the apps in the suite. Though Microsoft has met some resistance from users on both platforms for this particular feature, we think once people get used to the flexibility of the Ribbon it will save them an enormous amount of time.

Rather than digging through menus and scrolling through palettes, the Ribbon uses tabs that display commands relevant to a given task. As an example, clicking on an image in Word, PowerPoint, or Excel will change the tabs in the Ribbon to image-related tasks so you can make changes quickly without having to search through menus. If you still just can't get used to the Ribbon, in Office for Mac, you can turn it off and use regular drop-down menus an option that several Windows users probably wish they had.

Still, we recommend taking the time to learn the Ribbon as an investment that will save you more time in the future. Template galleries One of the great things about today's office suites is that, with most documents, you don't have to start from scratch. Choose among great-looking resumes and newsletters, complex photo catalogs, and calendar layouts, which let you fill in your information without the need for extra formatting.

Even if the selection in Office doesn't have what you're looking for, you can browse more than 10, user-generated templates and filter by category or keywords to get exactly what you want.

From there you can make customizations to your template to make the project your own. We particularly like the ability to mouse-over templates to view multiple-page layouts; it saves you a lot of time to not have to open each template to see what type of elements are used on each page. Media Browser Whether you're making a brochure, a newsletter, or a business presentation, you're going to want eye-catching multimedia to make your project pop.

In Office this meant you would be searching through the object palette of the toolbox or sifting through your media folders in the Finder. The new Media Browser gives you a centralized location to browse images, video, iMovie projects, iPhoto libraries, and your music from iTunes so you can grab what you need quickly whether you are in Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, or Excel.

If you don't have time to sift through each of the categories, you can do a quick search by keyword to get what you want. The suite is filled with time-saving shortcuts like these and we think it shows that the Mac team at Microsoft has been listening to users. New features Alongside interface enhancements like the Ribbon across all four Office applications, Microsoft Office offers a number of features that should reduce the time you spend gathering information so you can spend more time on getting the project done.

The new Conversation View in Outlook collapses e-mail threads so you can view the entire conversation without sifting through your in-box, for example. Likewise, new image-editing tools in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are welcome additions for anyone who works with media in documents and presentations, obviating the need for third-party editors in most situations.

Many of the new features and tools help you push your presentations and documents away from the usual bullet points and toward more-engaging visual presentations.

Outlook With Outlook now available in Office , several features are now available to Mac users that used to require separate and often not fully compatible software solutions for previous versions. Now, with a connection to Exchange Server or later , Mac users will be able to use global address books, set up meetings and send meeting requests, and check the availability of attendees on calendars.

Like the latest Windows version of Outlook, Conversation View is now available for Mac making it easy to find older messages in a thread by putting them together in one place.

You also can click an arrow on the left edge of the in-box item to instantly expand a thread into conversation view. According to Microsoft, this feature has gotten a mixed reaction from users, but we think once people get used to grouping e-mail threads together in Conversation View, it will save them a lot of time. Outlook for Mac also makes it easy to get messages from all your e-mail accounts in one place. New Unified Folders consolidate your various exchange and online accounts into one in-box folder for easy reading.

If you find it overwhelming, you can always browse each account separately by expanding a unified folder for individual account access. Those who are switching from Windows to Mac in a work environment will appreciate the new ability to seamlessly transfer your Outlook data from a Windows machine. You'll now be able to import your data files. But be aware that you'll only be able to import. PST files from Outlook or later. Some of the strengths of using Outlook in the workplace are the scheduling tools that let you map out your workday.

In Outlook for Mac, some helpful new features include the ability to preview your calendar directly from a meeting invitation to see if you're available to attend. A small preview window shows up in the lower right of an invite showing what you have scheduled around that time.

You'll also be able to stay on top of your busy schedule with the My Day window that lets you view upcoming appointments. Both of these features are great time-savers because you won't need to open your full calendar each time you need to check your schedule. PowerPoint Microsoft's PowerPoint is a mainstay for business meetings and now has added features to make it easy to create engaging visual presentations rather than the usual boring bullet points.

An improved Presenter view in PowerPoint gives you all the tools you need to pull off a flawless performance. As your audience watches, you'll be able to view the current slide, see what slide is coming up next, view personal notes for each slide, see the elapsed time for your presentation, and stay on target with a progress bar to show where you are in your presentation. To make your visual projects more portable, you'll now be able to embed movies. In previous versions, you would have needed to include the extra video files when sharing a presentation, but with this new feature, it's easy to deliver your presentation as one complete package.

You'll also be able to apply movie styles and effects by clicking on the video and using the appropriate dynamic tools in the Ribbon, all of which will be retained in your embedded movie when you share your presentation. Better slide transitions and animations in Office for Mac make it easy to create a pro-level presentation with new 3D effects, and a new tab in the Ribbon dedicated to Transitions keep them close at hand for on-the-spot changes.

Possibly the best-looking feature of all in PowerPoint is exclusive to the Mac version of Office and very useful for managing complex slides. Now when you create a slide that includes several graphical elements, you'll be able to use Dynamic Reordering to move objects between layers.

By choosing Dynamic Reordering in the Arrange menu, you're able to look at graphical elements of your slide in a 3D layered view, allowing you to move elements toward the front or back by clicking and dragging them to your preferred location. These features are available in Word as well, and will be very useful for managing graphically complex newsletters or brochures with several graphical elements.

Finally, to share your presentation with co-workers or clients remotely, PowerPoint includes a new feature called Broadcast Slideshow, which is also exclusive to Office for Mac.

Now, as long as you and your target audience have an account with Windows Live, you'll be able to quickly send a URL to up to 50 attendees and run through your presentation all without leaving your desk. Like many of the new features in Office , Broadcast Slideshow makes it easy to get your work in front of clients and colleagues without a lot of extra steps.

Excel The venerable software for spreadsheet creation and management received a few major improvements in Office Just like its Windows counterpart, you'll now be able to add Sparklines to your spreadsheet to make your data more visual.
