Default Macs

I recently went back to school (online classes) and I have a Mac computer. I have a few papers to write and I really dislike the microsoft office for macs. I miss the PC version. Could I download the PC version somehow to where it could be compatible for my Mac?

I am not a MAC user or expert but I think what you see is what your get......I have not seen any sort of emulator that will allow you to run the Windows version of MS/Office on a MAC.

Another possible option is to use the Office Web Apps from Microsoft. They work on a Mac and are free, though they can't do quite all that the installed versions offer.

Check them out here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/web-apps.

Sadly, you cannot get the Windows versions of Office on a Mac without installing Windows on the Mac using VMware or BootCamp.
