Office for Mac 2011 to reach public on Oct. 26th

updated 03:15 pm EDT, Tue September 28, 2010

Volume licensers already in action

Office for Mac 2011 is officially going on sale on October 26th, Microsoft has announced. The timing is in line with an earlier target of late October, and just a day prior to a rumored release date. The difference is moot for some businesses, as volume license distribution began roughly a week ago.

The 2011 suite will wrap in a number of changes from Windows versions of the software, such as a ribbon interface. The Entourage e-mail client is also being replaced with Outlook, and Mac owners will finally gain access to Messenger 8. The Home and Business edition is being priced at $200; Home and Student, which excludes Outlook, is $120. Pre-orders are currently underway.
