Can Mac users live without Microsoft Office for Mac? Seth Weintraub of Computerworld bought a new Mac and decided to see how long he could go without installing Office. He’s still waiting.
That was almost three months ago and I am still without. Ironically, I needed Microsoft’s Remote Desktop (standalone installer) once, but other than that, I’ve been able to keep my personal Mac 100% Microsoft Free.
I did the same thing six months ago with my most recent Mac, and one year ago for my wife’s Mac. No Microsoft Office. Apple’s iWork trio of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are excellent, less expensive, less cumbersome replacements.
