Does anyone know if MS Office 2013 will work in bootcamp for Retina Displayy or is it fuzzy?


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    Maybe you should ask Microsoft seeing as how Office 2013 is their product.

    Or he could ask it in the most likely place to get an answer, which is here. You could help us all out by staying out of the thread.

    Don't buy or install Office 2013.

     

    Microsoft has changed the License for the 2013 version of office. It is now like an OEM version in that it is Tied to the hardware it is First Installed to and can Not be moved to any other system. So if you ever buy a New Mac or a PC and want to Move Office 2013 to that new system, Whether in a month of 4+ Years, you will have to BUY Office 2013 again at the Full Price.

     

    Very bad.

     

    Use any other older version of Office that will install on Your version of Windows that you are running in a Boot Camp Partition.

    Well I have no faith in sites like slashgear so I went to Microsoft to check, and at this point I discovered that you are quite correct.

     

    Quite a restrictive license compared to previous versions.
