Microsoft "Microsoft Office isn't among the apps that will run natively on Intel-based Macs - and it won't be until the latter half of 2007, according to media reports. But when it does ship, Office will apparently be missing a feature so vital to cross-platform compatibility that I believe it will be the beginning of the end for the Mac version of the productivity suite."

Apple won't like this

Anyone remember how Apple cut a deal with Microsoft paying dearly just to get MS to agree to keep distributing Mac Office (and not to do anything to prevent future versions of Windows from running on Mactels) for a specified period of time? Apple probably wanted this for perceived enterprise feasibility purposes.

Seems MS found a way to do the opposite of what Apple wanted after all.
