    That was fun! I liked the "show" very much.
    No doubt Microsoft is THE software company. I always wondered why the Mac and Windows versions of Office lacked compatibility that much, given the fact that Microsoft is writing the software. Well done making them compatible.

    I'm looking forward to see more products running on both platforms, like Visio. Some SQL Server Management Studio would be nice… the .NET Framework (so I won't need mono anymore)… maybe Visual Studio Express (so I won't need monodevelop anymore)… ok, ok, I'll stop dreaming Wink

    I love Office 2011, all I need now is OneNote on Mac! Please Microsoft make it happen.

    OMG why make mac office better than Windows office? Surely Windows 7 is just as capable of doing the same stuff a mac can?
    Time to add that functionality as an update available for windows 7 office 2010

    @ahead:That's exactly what I was thinking. Does increased compatibility mean: We have features that are available on the Windows platform only, but now, we also have features that are available on the Mac platform only.

    Although I like the show. It's funny and entertaining. It's just that I understand now that compatibility might get more difficult in the future. Maybe it's a good idea to synchronize release dates and features for Windows and Mac.

    I don't think microsoft will stoop to their level, also microsoft doesn't have monopoly on pc's. And since a MAC technically is a pc it wouldn't make any sense. It's like saying TOSHIBA vs. PC, it doesn't make sense since TOSHIBA is a PC and you can install any of the different Operating systems on it, (and all if you have a big enough harddrive).
