The Real Story Behind Mac Outlook?

David Coursey is a veteran computer journalist and commentator with whom I had the pleasure of working years ago at InfoWorld. Coursey is still up to his old tricks, offering insight, analysis and bold opinions that would make Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann proud.

I'm not sure I totally agree with his Mac Office conspiracy theory, but here goes: Coursey believes that Microsoft hobbled Mac Office by not including Outlook, making the Mac as tough a sale in enterprises as copies of the Quran in a Baptist convention (or the Bible in a Taliban camp). In David's view, Microsoft only agreed to a Mac Outlook after Apple itself started building Exchange-compatible clients.
