The first major release of Office for the Mac in four years shines in some respects, with innovative new features in Word and PowerPoint. But overall, it still lags behind Office for Windows.

Conclusion: Windows Version Holds Edge
For all of its faults, Microsoft's Office 2008 for Mac has a slew of benefits that make it a worthwhile addition to any Mac. And for a relatively affordable price of $150 for the Home and Student Edition, it's not a bad deal if you're willing to forego some of the niceties, like Exchange support, included in the $400 version I tested.
If you're running more than one system and the other is a Windows computer, Office 2007 for Windows is a better choice. With a slew of more features and a slightly more advanced design, you'll probably find Microsoft's core products -- Word, Excel and Powerpoint -- are much easier to use on Windows. If not, Office 2008 for Mac isn't a bad choice.
