Microsoft releases Office 2016 for Mac, but just for Office 365

Mark Hachman | July 10, 2015
After years of treating the Mac as an also-ran, Microsoft has changed its tune: Microsoft formally released Office 2016 for the Mac on Thursday morning, even before it released it for Windows. The only catch? If you're not already an Office 365 subscriber, you'll be forced to wait until September.

The newest addition to the Office for Mac suite is OneNote, Microsoft's note-taking app for Windows and mobile platforms, although OneNote did launch as a standalone Mac app in 2014, and it's on iOS too. You can save your notes in notebooks that reside in the cloud. Notes can include a mixed bag of text, Web pages, and graphics, especially handy for, say, college lectures that combine a variety of media.

For those of you who have tried out the Office Preview, what's your take? Is iWork superior to the new Office, or is this just what you've been waiting for? We'll have our own formal review soon.
