That is true.Office:Mac 2008 will have some features the Windows version doesn't have and visa-versa.
I can see no good technical reason for dropping VB support.That is true.
My solution was so the OP could run Office 2007, which is quite a bit different than Office 2004 (Mac) and Office 2003 (PC).
One big area of concern is with Macros. MSFT is dropping support for VB on the Mac side with Office 2008. So those who need this capability will need to run Office 2007 for the PC.
There is a cheaper wayAnother option, if you just need to have Office 2007 right now, is to purchase the following:
- Windows XP
- Office 2007
Expensive, but gets you there right now.
It's a little inconvenient having to reboot your computer just to run Microsoft Word. Parallels Desktop running in Coherence Mode is perfect, and well worth the $80 price tag if you ask me.There is a cheaper way
- Download and install bootcamp (it's FREE)
- Purcahse Windows XP/Vista and install it
- Purchase Microsoft Office 2007 and install it
