office 2011 product boxesOffice for Mac

Microsoft has released suites of its major applications (Excel, PowerPoint and Word) since the late 1990s. Prior to that time each application was sold independently and had varying version numbers. Beginning with Microsoft Office for Mac 2001, all version numbers were revved to “9.0″, which corresponded with Mac OS 9, and Office for Mac X (10.0) was introduced as the first Office for Mac product that was compatible with Mac OS X.

Office for Mac version numbers correspond with Office for Windows version numbers but the year in the names of the products are unique to each platform. For example, Office 2007 for Windows corresponds with  Office 2008 for Mac, Office 2010 for Windows corresponds with Office 2011 for Mac, etc.
