Mac Office 2011 Highlighted at Macworld

Apple may not have been at Macworld, but Microsoft was -- along with a look at Office 2011 for Mac. During the show, Microsoft execs talked up the new release's focus and how they see it better addressing users' needs. Datamation has the story.

At this week's Macworld Expo 2010 conference in San Francisco, Microsoft demonstrated a test version of its upcoming Office 2011 for Mac, although little new was revealed other than the lack of a full-scale beta test.

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) officials showed off the next Mac version's new "ribbon" user interface, and reiterated that the package will ship later this year.

The company had already made almost all of the information public last summer.

One new piece of information -- there is no "beta test" per se in the plans. Instead, Microsoft is planning a "small private beta," a company spokesperson told InternetNews.com in an e-mail.
