It’s no surprise Microsoft isn’t a fan of Apple. So it makes perfect sense that Microsoft Office for Mac was pushed back from Q3 2007 to January 2008. The decision comes not from tired programmers who need a vacation in Orlando, but instead from Microsoft’s MBU or Mac Business Unit. Reasons cited include making sure that the software released is of “quality” – whatever that means. Don’t expect the next OS X version of Office until next summer at this point.
