Mac Office RDC beta
The Office for Mac team has promised a beta test of its latest Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client as a Universal Binary some time during the week of July 30th that will run natively on Intel-based Macs alongside a Beta 2 release of the teams file format converters. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac allows users to connect to a Windows-based computer and work with programs as well as files on that computer remotely from the Mac system. The file format converters update will include a significant Word refresh as well as the addition of PowerPoint (.pptx) support, according to the team.
