Software giant Microsoft said it has committed to producing its first Office upgrade for the Macintosh platform which will now arrive in March.
That follows last year's controversial deal where, as part of an arrangement to buy into Apple Corporation, Microsoft said it would produce the long-awaited upgrade.
According to US sources, the upgrade comes with Internet Explorer but that may open a fresh can of worms with the US Department of Justice (DoJ).
Observers saw last year's Microsoft buy-in to Apple as a way to deflect a potential DoJ investigation.
But now that Office for the Mac 98 will come with Internet Explorer, that could tweak the government agency into further Microsoft investigations.
