It has something to do with the MacBU, who also makes Messenger for Mac and maintains it's own site, being less then a hundred and being better coders and having better tools (Xcode, Interface Builder, Dashcode) then the Microsoft Office team, which makes only Office, and having hundreds of coders working on scattered projects that somehow all join into one.
Make no mistake though, in terms of core software, Office for Mac is much much better, in terms of actual business solutions scalable for everyone from the home user to the small business, and co-op throughout a business, Office 2007 is much better in that area.
I've used Word 2007, Outlook 2007, and Powerpoint 2007, the other Apps didn't interest me and I really had no use at all for the server components, those 3 at the very least are very good. Outlook could use some more UI polish, it was more difficult to use then PPT07 and Word07.
