Chapter 10. My Annotated Top 10 Reasons ... > Office is Office, and then some.

8. Office is Office, and then some.

The transition to a Mac is easy in part because you’ll continue using the same applications you already know. Microsoft Office v. X for Mac OS X gives you Word, PowerPoint and Excel, all with the same familiar features and shortcut commands. And thanks to exclusive features, the Mac versions improve on their Windows counterparts. Office documents are all fully compatible between Mac and Windows, so you can share everything from spreadsheets to presentations. Beyond Office, you’ll find you can run more than 3,000 applications designed specifically for Apple’s new operating system, Mac OS X. You can do anything you’d dream of doing on the Mac—from CAD to databases to finance.

Microsoft Office is a very different set of applications on Mac than on Windows. There’s no Access, for starters, and Outlook is replaced by an OK-but-not-great program called Entourage.
