NOw this is funny, only from Microsoft. Regarding Office 2008 for the Mac, MS announces it’s intent to deliver a product. Not that there is a product or that they will release one, just an intent. I intend to take a crap later this evening, or maybe not, depending on my mood.
Inside Microsoft Office 2008 for Macintosh: Q&A: From Macworld Conference & Expo 2007, the head of Microsoft’s Mac Business Unit discusses the story behind the next generation of Microsoft’s productivity software suite for the Mac. Roz Ho: This year we are thrilled to announce our intent to deliver the first Universal version of Office for Mac – Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. The new version of our productivity suite is designed to work seamlessly for users on either Intel-based Macs or PowerPCs. Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac is expected to be available in the second half of 2007, and will provide Mac users with tools designed to be simple, intuitive and easily discovered – to help them work smarter and more efficiently. We are excited to get this next version out as another example of our team’s dedication to building leading-edge products for the Mac platform.
