Microsoft Ends Support For Office For Mac 2008

Microsoft ended support for Office for Mac 2008 on April 9.  The company reminded users in a blog post on their website.  Office for Mac 2008 will continue to function on computers, but Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates or bug fixes. Users will still be able to download the latest updates until April 19, 2014.

Microsoft, of course, reminded everyone that it’s a great time to purchase an Office 365 subscription (which includes Office for Mac 2011) and all future upgrades to the product. Those looking for a free alternative, might want to consider LibreOffice. Check out our review here. [1]
