Microsoft is up to it's old tricks again. I just read the Office 2008 reviews in Macworld.... The key points: - VB macros removed from office 2008 - Office 2008 not really different from 2004 (in functionality) - Office 2008 supports the new xlsx and docx formats. - Automation of workflows accomplished via applescript So it seems that Office on the mac is going to be a red-headed stepchild and widespread adoption of this package will maroon Mac owners away from the existing body of office 2007 users. Now is the time to say no and to stop the game. Get open office and proactively lobby everyone you know to adopt openoffice. Find and buy products that convert documents from docx and xlsx into open document formats. Use PDF as much as you can.
