Office is present on several different platforms, and in particular on OS X. However, the last version of the suite dates back to 2011 and it no longer really matches the visual identity of the operating system. Even less since the arrival of Yosemite, by the way. Fortunately, Microsoft is currently working on a new version of its suite and you will be able to discover a little below some captures presenting Outlook . Wonderful, isn't it? Not really, actually.
If you've had the opportunity to test Yosemite, or even watch my various videos about it , then you should know that the system's interface goes straight to the point, with a purposely minimalist and uncluttered interface.
The new version of Outlook visibly takes up some of the system codes, as this pretty translucent sidebar proves, but without pushing the concept to the limit. The famous ribbon is therefore always in the game, with dozens of different icons which hinder the readability of the whole. The same goes for the message list, which is a little too compact.
So of course, the software is still in development and a lot of things can (will) change between now and the final version, but we must admit that we are very far from what Mail, Mailbox or even Air Mail offer.
And the whole problem is there, finally. Apple eaters have become accustomed to these ultra-clean interfaces and they may suddenly find it very difficult to take out the credit card to buy an expensive office suite, and which does not go particularly well with the interface of their system. preferred operating.
