EES & Apple
Most school deployments I have catered for have generally required Dual Boot scenarios with both Windows & Mac OSX with the windows component being used for general domain access, office etc and OSX for the more specialist areas such as for media rich content.
However; since the inception of EES and entirely unconnected, one school has decided they want to forgo this option and simply keep their Mac's as ...Mac's running Snow Leopard.
Now, I have a question I've posed to our Gold Partner, but wondered if anyone else had come across this:
The school potentially still wishes to use office, but on OSX, so is this covered by EES or does it need to be covered under the AELP as a separate isolated cost?
My gut feeling it isn't as generally M$ licenses are restricted or termed within their EULA are "PC". Thoughts?
There are other considerations outside of this of course such as managed service support for 2011 Office for Mac but that is a different debate.
According to the program guide
EES covers both Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 and Office for Mac 2011.
Hope this helps
Is a link to the guide
Under OVS & EES agreements, Office is a platform independent license, and the end user can choose to use Office for Mac or PC. Same license.

And mac OS is a qualifying upgrade path should they wish to get rid of MAC OS on their MAC (for some odd reason).
