Mac Office 2008 Delayed

Office 2008 Mac galleryMicrosoft has announced it had to delay the Release To Manufacturing of Office 2008 for Apple Macs until December of this year, which means Mac users won’t get the new version until January 2008. Microsoft had hoped to get the product out before the holiday shopping season, so they are visibly dissapointed. Expect to see the product released for Macworld 2008, January 14-18.

Much of the delay can be attributed to having to re-engineer the product for Intel Macs, as well as the new Office Open XML file formats. As a consequence, the file converters for Office 2004, which will allow those programs to run Office 2008/2007 files, will not be available until about eight weeks after Office 2008 ships.
