Mac OS X Documentary evidence that Microsoft considered abandoning Office for Mac in order to cause 'a great deal of harm' to Apple has emerged. An emailed memo from Microsoft-founder Bill Gates to then Mac Business Unit chief Ben Waldman dated June 1997 talks about morale in the Mac Office development camp. At that time Microsoft's senior management were considering dumping Mac support. The email complains at poor sales of Office, which it attributes to a lack of focus on making such sales among reps at that time.

It'd be nice to see Apple bring back a reborn version of AppleWorks.

Myself, I'd just like to see ClarisWorks and Hypercard come back.

(The original programmers are still around, so this is one of those 'if I had a million dollars' scenarios.)
