    10. Microsoft launches Outlook for Mac in Office 2011

    With Office for Mac 2011, released on 26 October, 2010, Microsoft once again made the Mac OS X version of its world-dominant productivity suite harmonise more closely with the latest Windows version, after several Mac editions that diverged wildly from their Windows counterparts.

    By far the most significant part of Office 2011 is that it brings back a version of Microsoft Outlook for email and Exchange syncing, replacing the Mac-specific Entourage. This makes the latest Macs much better equipped to function in the business world.
