Microsoft has announced that it intends to release Office 2004 for the Apple Mac during the first half of 2004. "Microsoft's new Office 2004 for Mac includes many Mac-first features and is the best version of Office yet," said Phil Schiller, senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing at Apple. "Office is a must-have productivity suite for many Mac users, and we're pleased that the Microsoft Mac BU continues to show its dedication to the Mac platform by delivering great products for Mac users now and for years to come." The updated software will ship with a number of new features including a scrapbook, which will allow users to save text, logos, pictures, and other types of media in a central location that can be used in a project at a later time. The Notebook feature, which will resemble ruled notebook paper, allows users to jot notes but also include calendar events and priorities. "When I first joined Microsoft 13 years ago, I worked on Office 1.5 for Mac. I've seen the evolution of our products firsthand, and Office 2004 is our proudest accomplishment to date," said Roz Ho, general manager of Microsoft's Mac business unit. "I'm using Office as it's being developed and am constantly amazed at how the new features help me work more effectively, letting me focus on the really fun part of my job - developing software. I know our customers will feel just as passionately about Office 2004 as I do when it launches later this year."
