Details have begun to emerge of the forthcoming version of Microsoft Office 2007 for Macs.
The Mac version will use the XML file format as in Office 2007 for Windows, which should make for easy sharing between platforms.
Microsoft's new ribbon interface that has had the PC world abuzz, however, will not be making its way to the Mac OS.
"We will be doing a user interface refresh, but it will not be exactly like you see in Office 2007," said Starman. "It just would not make sense."
Starman estimates launch of the new Office for the Mac to take place six to eight months after Office 2007 for Windows, which could be as early as January 2007.
