Yah, boo, sucks to Microsoft Office for Mac!

IT industry veteran Simon Pride thinks the contrast between the two office packages is worth a bit of mockery. In his blog he writes:

  • From Microsoft, an announcement that the Mac version of Office 2007 (“Office 2008”) won’t ship until January 2008. It will probably cost about the same as Office 2004 – about $400 per computer.
  • From Apple, an announcement that iWork 2008 is shipping today, August 2007. iWork is a bundle of three apps: a word processor and page layout (DTP) app, a spreadsheet and a presentation graphics package. If you want one copy, it will cost you $79

Bang goes your next free trip to Seattle, Simon…

    For ‘next’ there would have to have been a first. Now offer me a week in the Bay area with a day in Cupertino and I’m there.
