Mac Office To Get Sharper Web Hooks

Office for Mac 2011, which is (surprisingly) actually due this year, will get some of the Web Apps features that debuted in Office 2010 for the PC this summer.

Besides lightweight Web versions of Word, PowerPoint and Excel, Mac Office will also use the Web to support co-authoring.

Mac users will also be able to "broadcast" PowerPoint, meaning their presentations can be shared with folks that don't have PowerPoint.

The Mac, in many respects, has full-enterprise software parity with the PC. I can't for the life of me figure out why the otherwise brilliant Steve Jobs isn't making a concerted effort to push the Mac towards the enterprise. Maybe it just doesn't fit the company's carefully crafted consumer culture. What would it take for your shop to adopt Macs? Advice for Jobs welcome at [email protected].
