Mac Fans Gain Office Revamp
One reason the Mac is a semi-viable corporate machine is its support of Microsoft Office. For better or worse, the latest rev of Mac Office doesn't have the new ribbon interface. (As a new ribbon user, I'm torn; some parts are better and some parts are just frustrating.) Nevertheless, Mac Office is still pretty current, even more so with this week's release of Service Pack 2 for Office 2008 for the Mac.
So what do you get for your download? Besides security and performance tweaks, Microsoft is tossing in Web-based document sharing through Office Live Workspace. Microsoft is also touting integration with SharePoint, now the holy grail of Microsoft collaborative computing.
