MS Word 2008 for Mac

At the Expo, Microsoft offered a public sneak peak at its forthcoming Office 2008 software, this time focusing strictly on Microsoft Word 2008 for Mac, which it says is the closest to completion. The images depict the product introduction, Microsoft's default editing screen, the new "ribbon"-like UI at the top of each document featuring various templates and the new 'MyDay' standalone application that interfaces with MS Entourage to display action items/to-dos and other daily info. The company released screenshots of Microsoft Office for Mac 2008 earlier this week, promising to ship the product in the second half of 2007. Microsoft office includes 30 million lines of code, and the Redmond-based company says that of the entire suite Microsoft Word is the closest to completion. The new revision of Office runs natively on Intel-based Macs as as Universal Binary, and Microsoft claims that its Word software is the most used application within its Office suite.

Other Expo photo galleries include the Keynote/iPhone, Apple Booth/Show Floor, Greenpeace greening of SF Apple Store, and Pre-show images.

    is this really office?

    as a user of primarily Keynote + Pages, the green and yellow template looks like an iWork design. Have they finally tightened down on their design department and stopped letting their kindergarten kids do their layouts?
