Microsoft Office is now in the App Store

As promised at WWDC with the changes around sandboxing, under the hood changes along with Apple changing how much of a cut they received from subscriptions that were paid through the App Store from within the application downloaded off the store vs. the customer go to said organisations website and doing it manually, Microsoft has finally delivered Microsoft Office to the Mac App Store (link). What that will mean is that each application is downloaded as a separate piece of software and all updates will be distributed through the store rather than the situation of having to have a ‘Microsoft Office Update’ daemon running in the background. I’ve given it a try and everything is working well – no differences as far as I see it when compared to Office 365 that is downloaded from the store.
