heropanel Last week our Mac Business Unit (MacBU) completed Office:mac 2008.  This was released to the manufacturing process which means the elves are busy getting it ready.  No, Santa isn't going to bring it for Christmas so you don't need to worry if you've been naughty or nice.

We do however plan to have it ready January 15th for MacWorld 2008.  See the Mac Mojo blog post on the subject.
