    MacOffice 2011 works fine with Lion.

    There is an issue which (EDIT) Communicator (it crashes) and Outlook (it can't import Mail from Apple Mail yet). There are apparently a few minor display/interface issues as well but nothing that is a show stopper. If you don't use (EDIT) Communicator (who does?) and you have already imported your Mail from Apple Mail to Outlook (or don't care to do so) then you should be ok. MS will probably have fixes out over the next few months for all of these....

    There is an issue which Messenger (it crashes)
    Messenger doesn't crash, it's Communicator that crashes, but Communicator only comes with the enterprise version of the suite.

    Yep, my mistake. Either way though, not a huge issue for most, but an issue either way...

    There's an issue with using the Solver in Excel that I've mentioned elsewhere. You need to load it from Excel as launching it from outside of Excel is not yet supported.

    To add to the above, the Microsoft Office development team has promised that there will be updates to both Office 2008 and 2011 which will address the problems that are experienced with running Lion. They didn't say when the updates would be released and specifically stated that the priority would be for Office 2011 first and then Office 2008.
