– Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit (MacBU) thinks that this is a great year to release the next major revision of Office, as 2004 is the 20th anniversary of both Word and the Mac (Word 1.0 launched in 1984 as a Mac-only product). When previewing Office 2004 at last week’s Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Scott Erickson, group product manager of the MacBU, told MacMinute that Office 2004, due in July, will include “Mac first and Mac only” features.
