RE[2]: And Apple Allowed it!?!?

Apple may be alive today because of the pact, but if memory serves, it was a ten year long pact that started in 1997.

Office, as a suite, was indeed released for Mac before it was released for Windows but it wasn't in 1997. Office 1 for Mac was released in 1990.
It's important to note though that all the individual components (Word, Excel etc) was all available on Windows before Mac.
