“While Office 2010 for Windows has been tagged with a June 2010 release date, the Office for Mac OS X was named Office 2011 for Mac, with a release date set for this holiday season. Fortunately, if you want Office 2011 for Mac and want it now, you are now able to download the beta 2, a version that has been leaked online, along with the serial key you need.
“The beta 2 version of Office 2011 for Mac you can download, is the build 18.104.22.168326 and comes with one major visual UI improvement called Ribbon user interface, but also adds some features such as better integration into Office Web Apps.
“And come to think of it, these are the only major problems Microsoft Office has at the moment. In my opinion, yes, the Ribbon UI is an obvious improvement, but my guess is that the main feature/improvement in Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac (as well as the 2010 Windows version) is Microsoft’s ambition to try and respond to Google Docs easiness of use when it comes to collaborating on a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or PowerPoint presentation over the Web.
“But you can check out more for yourself by downloading Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac Beta 2 version free. When asked for the serial key, enter: TDMC8-7GYKM-DXJFD-7PVCC-6GX4J.”
I wonder if Google will allow you to define file types one day. That would be helpful for those who have legacy files.

“An older version of the Microsoft Database Daemon is running” or “An unexpected error occurred while trying to load the Microsoft Framework library” after you install Office 2004 for Mac SP2
You receive an error message. So the answer is to:
- Delete the Microsoft Database Daemon from the startup items in your Accounts > Login items tab in System Preferences.
- Restart the computer
- Download and install all Office 2004 updates: http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.mspx . Under the “Browse for downloads” section, click Office 2004. Download all the available updates or use Microsoft AutoUpdate.
Trying to open .xlsx, .docx, or .pptx file in Office for Mac 2004:. If you click on the link above you will learn that you have to download and install the Open XML File Format Converter. Nice that you have some forward compatibility. MS changes its download links or I would have included it in this article.
