With Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac, Microsoft have certainly stepped-up a gear with a slick, redesigned interface tailored for OS X and user friendly collaboration tools.
Only available as part of Office 2011
Microsoft Word 2011 is a component of Microsoft Office 2011, which has been significantly improved for Macs from the 2008 version. In Microsoft Word 2011, the toolbar has been vastly improved and is far more practical thanks to the Ribbon interface inspired by the Windows version. As a result, you now have different sets of tools depending on different types of document that you're working on.
Support for full screen mode
Microsoft Word 2011 makes much greater use of screen real estate too. By using the Ribbon, you can view documents in glorious full screen mode which really makes your documents look great and focuses you on the document rather than the toolbars surrounding it.
Also in Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac, Microsoft have added support for SharePoint. This allows Mac users to connect to Microsoft's Sharepoint servers directly and collaborate on documents in realtime.
A vast improvement on previous versions
Microsoft Word 2011 and the entire Office suite have been through some major changes making it finally feel like a real OS X product.
