Microsoft Office is a lot more than Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook, although that’s what most people think of first. There’s now a whole range, from the Office 365 cloud services to the mobile apps for iOS and Android (along with Skype for Business, Dynamics and Power BI), backing up CEO Satya Nadella’s claims that Microsoft is the productivity company. The mobile Office apps are certainly popular, but Office on Windows and Mac remains the main attraction, even in Microsoft’s cloud-centric approach.
At any rate, what we’re actually getting with Office 2016 isn’t the same Office everywhere. It’s more like the right Office for each platform – and in this case, that’s Windows, Windows 10, and OS X.
