    What about exchange?

    Will Entourage be a better MS Exchange client?

    Syncing anyone?

    What if Microsoft started to make their stuff sync with PDA:s, cell phones etc... I prefer Entourage over Mail-Address Book-iCal but the extra trouble to sync makes me consider switching soon.

    Buggy

    I have found Word, and to a lesser extent Excel to be filled with bugs. I hope that this new version FIRST kills the bugs, and then offers usable features. It may be impossible to cure the inconsistencies in such a large program, that is why I wish they could find a way to make money fixing what they already have.

    will it run faster?

    seriously. This is something that they never address, they just toss out some new feature that i may use between once and never. Adobe can do features plus performance, why cant the largest software company on earth do it?

    Office?

    What's office? Is this some new App about to come out? How does it compare to Appleworks? Will it help me type my letters quicker? Actually, who writes letters anymore...

    PowerPoint

    The PowerPoint capability mentioned in the article is pretty important to me. It's been a function in the Windows version for at least two generations. It allows a presenter with a laptop to have a view of the outline and notes on their computer screen while projecting the regular show to the audience. It gives much more control, and it will be nice to finally be at parity. Assuming it works properly, which I'll wait to see.

    Sync this . . .

    I agree with the previosu poster on the syncing issue. Will Entourage sync with my Palm and cell phone? If so, will it be bugless and flawless? Will Entourage finally be compatible with ALL VERSIONS of Exchange? (not like Apple Mail compatibility---REAL compatibility) Why don't they pare down some of those features and increase speed and real functionality???--not just bells and whistles...

    Entorage

    Entourage will sync to PalmOS if you install the Microsoft Handheld Synchronization for entourage at:

    MS Palm-sync download

    i don't know about your phone though, that was one of the "features" that set iSync apart from the other syncing c***

    They still don't put access in it.
