Office 2016 for the Mac: We deserve better
Microsoft

I've been using Office 2016 for Mac as my everyday office productivity suite since it went into beta earlier this year, and I don't understand why so many reviewers are fawning over it. It's a marginal improvement over Office 2008, and it has issues that show it should still be in beta.

Maybe because it's been four years since Microsoft bothered to update Office for Mac (the stunningly unusable Ofice 2011, whose painful memory I long ago buried), and seven years since a serious update (Office 2008), people are grateful of anything. But I think we deserve better.
