Microsoft Office Products


Microsoft Office 2007 (Office 12.0) was released in 2007. Office 2007's new features include a new graphical user interface called the Fluent User Interface, replacing the menus and toolbars that have been the cornerstone of Office since its inception with a tabbed toolbar, known as the Ribbon; new XML-based file formats called Office Open XML; and the inclusion of Groove, a collaborative software application.

Microsoft Office 2010 (Office 14.0) was released in 2010. The main features of Office 2010 include the backstage file menu, new collaboration tools, a customizable ribbon, protected view and a navigation pane. Microsoft Office 2010 also features a new logo, which is similar to the 2007 logo, except in gold, and with a slightly modified shape.

Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac  was released in 2008. It was the first Office for Mac suite that was a universal binary, running natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs, and it supported Office Open XML file formats first introduced in Office 2007 for Windows

Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 was released on October 26, 2010, and features a Mac version of Outlook to replace the Entourage email client. This Mac version of Outlook is intended to make the Mac version of Office work better with Microsoft's Exchange server and with those using Office for Windows. Office 2011 includes a Mac-based Ribbon similar to Office for Windows.
