What is the Mac Business Unit at MicroSoft up to? When do we get a new explorer for Mac? Or will we ever?

IMHO what should be released from MBU in order of importance.
1. OS X Exchange client
2. Explorer upgrade with better java support
3. Visio for OS X
4. Access for OS X
5. new Office X
150 people is a lot of people.

I dunno, the only M$ product i use is Word. Just Word. I just stopped using them. I personly think that Access might not have a big effect on the Mac community.

MacBU sure has been quiet lately.
I suppose that port of MSN for the Mac must be taking a lot of time.

I have found that FileMaker Pro can open alot of Access stuff perfectly. Try it out.

Seems you peeps like ya databases.... personally I hate access. Even right down on a SQL level it managed to screw things up for me.
Check this out tho. <a href="
; the mysql peeps have really developed things over the last few years. This is one database that is gonna rock the socks of the "Big" players.
I like the headline "... Out of 5 databases tested, only Oracle9i and MySQL completed the test... "

Problem is if all you do is support them and you don't make databases, then you have very little control on what software they use
Look at this, <a href="
Entourage X? Hopefully with Exchange support? Please?

How about priority 1: A new version of Word that can make files with names longer than 32 characters!
Duuuuuh how hard can it be?
