Mac OS X Microsoft's next-gen Office suite for the Mac is being given a top-to-toe refit in readiness for its debut in the third quarter of 2007. On the surface is a revised interface which borrows ideas from the Office 2007 for Windows 'ribbon' and has already been radically changed due to user feedback. The new versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint will all adopt the native XML file formats of their Windows siblings. And, the program is of course being rebuilt as an Intel-friendly Universal Binary application.

NeoOffice, working mighty fine?
Go back to disturbing goats under your bridge. NeoOffice is good for $0, but it spazes when you resize it, it's buggy, barely native at all and slow as hell. If you have the money MSO:Mac is an excellent product (excl. speed on macintels)
