+ - Microsoft Considered Dumping Mac Office

Submitted by narramissic
narramissic (997261) writes "In the wake of the recent Iowa anti-trust trial, documentary evidence emerged that Microsoft considered abandoning Office for Mac. In a June 1997 e-mail memo to then Mac Business Unit chief Ben Waldman, Bill Gates says that halting development is 'the strongest bargaining point we have, as doing so will do a great deal of harm to Apple immediately.' The document also confirms that Microsoft at the time saw Office for the Mac as a chance to test new features in the product before they appeared in Windows, 'because it is so much less critical to our business than Windows.'"

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
