Note regarding Office Professional Plus in Office 365

Office Professional Plus is designed to use on Windows workstations.  Office Professional Plus does not work on a Mac or on tablet devices. For more information please see Office 365 ProPlus http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg715562.aspx


Note regarding Office Web Apps in Office 365

Office Web Apps is not a replacement for the standard desktop MS Office.  Office Web Apps allows you to view or edit (depending on the license purchased) MS Office documents in the browser when using Outlook Web Mail or SharePoint Online.  It has a reduced set of functionality focused on the more frequently used editing needs.  Office Web Apps is designed more for minor edits, on the go, when you don’t have access to your computer or only have access to a web browser (e.g. at a conference, or on a trip).  For more information about Office Web Apps see: Getting started with Office Web Apps in Office 365
