Microsoft While WWDC is underway, Microsoft's Macintosh Business Unit has announced that Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 will be available in 32bit only. Microsoft has not yet completed the transition to from Carbon to Cocoa since it has focussed on increasing compatibility between Office for Windows and Office for Mac, and since Carbon is only available in 32bit, Redmond doesn't really have a choice. While it won't affect users in any meaningful way (unless you use gigantic spreadsheets or something), it has some Mac users riled up.

My 2x1O^E15 page book I was writing will have to wait for the next version of Word I suppose. *sigh* On a serious note, the beta I had of it was much faster starting up than Office 2008 was. Seemed to launch as fast as the Windows version.
