Full name of the new product is Microsoft Office Home & Student
2016, it includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, adapted to the
specifics of working with office software in the environment of OS X. To
use Office 2016 one does not require a subscription to Office 365, a
one-time payment is enough.
The basic requirement for the
operation of the software is the availability of version of OS X 10.10
or newer. In fact Microsoft promises same features offering the only
alternative to existing Office 365 package for the Mac.
Office 2016 for OS X is distributed in full and lite versions - $150 and $ 230 respectively. The difference between them is that the cheapest option in addition to the standard set of applications provides for only 15 GB in the OneDrive cloud instead of the terabyte. Also it does not include any editors like Outlook, Publisher, Access, or 60 minutes per month of
favourable Skype calls, no support of "Instant update" mechanism, or even the level of technical service, which is available for Office 365 subscribers. Compatibility with products of MS Office family for tablets and smartphones is not guaranteed. In short, this product is a good choice for true connoisseurs of unpretentious and autonomous existence.
For those who like all-in one solutions full version of Microsoft Office 2016 is recommended.
The software is compatible with versions for Windows from 7th and newer.
