San Jose Mercury News – Microsoft delays launch of Office 2008 for Macs to January

I’ve decided to stop waiting. besides, I only now use office for Work, and I can deal with the Office2007 on Parallels. Besides, MS isn’t making a version of Visio or OneNote, so the suite as a whole is worthless to me as far as integration and workflow. And you can also bet that the Mac version will be crippled or chaotic like Office2004 is vs. it’s Windows counterpart.

SEATTLE – Microsoft Corp. will delay the release of Office 2008 for Apple Inc.’s Macintosh computers until the middle of January 2008, in order to fix lingering bugs in the software.
The software maker previously said the new suite, which is to include Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and the Entourage e-mail program, would go on sale sometime in the second half of 2007.
“It really is just a quality issue across the board,” Craig Eisler, general manager of Microsoft’s Macintosh business unit, said in an interview Wednesday.
