"Still working after all these years"

March 05, 2014  |  By Mixotic

 |  Version: Microsoft Office 2008 12.3.6

Pros

Pretty easy to use and has all the basic text editing functions you need.

Cons

Only really creates Word documents, and when copying and pasting into other formats your mileage may vary. It's a terrible HTML editor.

Summary

Even with some flaws, this software still seems to do the job on my work computer. I've never needed an update, and probably won't get one until they give me a computer this software won't run on.

"Don't Upgrade !!"

August 29, 2011  |  By AD_Ward9

 |  Version: Microsoft Office 2008 12.3

Pros

Word 2008 had fewer crashes than 2004 (still a lot more than MS Windows Word 2003 - unusual for a Mac app), but then I upgraded it - see the ~Cons

Cons

Disaster! I bought a new MacBook Pro to replace my original one (literally wore out), and then did the Aug 2011 update. Suddenly it tells me I am not licensed! This is a proper copy I bought from a US Apple Store.

Summary

Microsoft seem to a bunch of monkeys as regards software quality and customer treatment. They seem to have brought in a policy that one cannot move from one Apple Mac to another even if the original one is wiped clean (which I did). Do not upgrade this product as doing so can make it uninstall itself.

"Microsoft Office 2004 far superior."

June 24, 2011  |  By myinmi

 |  Version: Microsoft Office 2008 12.3

Pros

None, if we compare it to Office 2004. Beyond that, the tech people are very kind and helpful.

Cons

Office 2008 has only presented problems, but I use mostly Word. It almost lost an entire book that I wrote because it refused to save the file saying I was out of memory. I only use a fraction of my computer memory.

Summary

Go back to Office 2004 or use a different program.
Another blogger responded quite well to this already.
Look on cnet for the response.

December 11, 2010  |  By bschlender

 |  Version: Microsoft Office 2008 12.2.8

I suppose the app works better
