Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac beta

Microsoft has just begun to issue Beta versions of the next iteration of its Office for Mac software to testers, and claims that it’s still on track to release the new version of its productivity software in January next year. We took a look at Microsoft's next-generation Office software for Apple Macs - here's our review:

It’s about time Microsoft updated Office for the Mac. Three years have passed since Microsoft launched Office 2004 for Mac. That suite of applications debuted back in the spring of that year and a lot has happened since.

Apple’s own Apple iWork suite was launched in January 2005, bringing together year-old Keynote and the new desktop-publishing application, Pages, into one package. While the collection did offer excellent integration with Apple’s iLife tools, it didn’t include spreadsheet, database or drawing tools, so couldn’t really be positioned as a competitor to Microsoft’s industry-standard Microsoft Office for Mac software.

Then in October 2006 Google launched Google Docs & Spreadsheets. Google Docs is a free, web-based word processor and spreadsheet application that enables users to create and edit documents online and also collaborate with other users. A presentation application is expected to launch this summer, further positioning the collection of applications as a competitor to Office.

The other significant change is Apple’s move to Intel processors. This colossal modification has seen Macs enjoy a surge in popularity as tools such as Boot Camp and virtualisation software such as Parallels have invalidated the incompatibility excuse and enticed die-hard Windows fans on to the platform.

The move to Intel processors is one key reason for the delay in getting the next version of Office ready for Mac users. Microsoft developers have had to rewrite much of the Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac code from the ground up for it to run on the Intel-driven Macs.

Office 2004 is not available in Universal binaries, so for now running Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac on an Intel-powered Mac requires Rosetta. This technology runs in the background, translating the code into something that the Intel processor understands. Under Rosetta, Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac is usable, although some lag has been seen in actions such as scrolling through large documents. Luckily, the processors are so fast that no real loss of productivity is seen when compared to PowerPC Macs.

When Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac isn’t running through the Rosetta translator we expect to see astronomical speed increases, and reports indicate that the new version runs at unprecedented speeds. Sheridan Jones, group marketing manager for the Microsoft Macintosh Business Unit, told us: “I’m really impressed with the speed of the Intel version, especially with graphics intensive tasks.”

It’s not just the speed of Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac that has us excited, however. We've had a look at some of the new features we can expect to see in the new version of the Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac productivity suite, all of which should make the applications more accessible, and some of which, you will be able to boast to your PC-using friends, are Mac-only.

More than likely the programs will just refuse to run after that date.
