RE: [newtech-1] Microsoft's consumer brand is dying

Office 2011 for Mac - I installed it and loving it

"bringing Outlook to the Mac platform was obviously a great business choice
for Microsoft and one more pathway through which Macs will work their way
into the enterprise."

MS shooting themselves in the foot? no because they are still making the $$
off Office, and off the Halo effect of Apple

IE and WinMo took big hits in the past 3 years. Zune failed even after they
finally made a respectable product.  The iPhone and iPad are having a halo
effect.  Now we  have Google with Chrome, Docs and Android.  More reasons
not to use Microsoft. At some point this will hit the bottom line.
