Microsoft today released beta 1 of a docx converter for Mac Office 2004. This converter allows a ONE-WAY conversion of docx files to Mac .doc format so you can open them. You cannot save them as docx from the Mac, nor send it back. That’s to “protect your data” by the way.
Who cares? If Microsoft’s MacBU wanted to impress folks, they would wake up to the half-assiness known as Entourage and spend a lot of time and resources into making it a sweet and beautiful application that sings happily with PC brethren in a mixed, collaborative environment.
But until then, I guess I can convert docx files for fun. Yawn.
