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.

Does not seem to be the case this time. Microsoft does not want Office to work well on Apple's OS and Apple does not want iTunes to work well on Microsoft's OS. Both are saying "If you want to use this app then use our OS". Competition also delivers dirty tactics.
