[qi:022] Microsoft Mac BU had promised Microsoft Office 2008 in the second half of 2007. Technically we are in the 2H 2007. There is no sign of even a beta release, which doesn’t bode well for the release of a much-needed upgrade to the long-in-the-tooth Microsoft Office 2004. “The team is heads down getting Office 2008 ready to ship,” Craig Eisler, General Manager of Microsoft’s Mac BU writes on the official blog for the division. Still, no ship date!
