Microsoft Microsoft says it will be forced to delay Office 2008 for Mac, the next version of its productivity suite for Apple Inc. computers, until early next year. The company had been planning to release the product this year. But a recent development review showed that "the quality just wasn't where we wanted it to be," said Craig Eisler, who became general manager of Microsoft's Mac Business Unit in June.

Looking at Microsoft moves insisting in anti-competitive strategies every time they release a new version of Office or Windows OS why didn't Apple invested some of their (record breaking) profits in a Office Suite made by Apple itself ?

Office suite is the most needed software application of any platform and Apple shouldn't impose a third party professional solution to its user base. They could even make some money with it.

As for the VBA, OpenOffice and Python can really work as a substitute; if not better.
