Kevin Browne, general manager of Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit (Mac BU) will host a feature presentation at this summer’s Macworld Conference & Expo in New York. Browne will offer his take on the state of the Mac development world and discuss Office 10 for Mac OS X on Thursday, July 19, from 9-10 am.
In the past, Browne has called Mac OS X “the rock-solid new foundation our Macintosh customers have been waiting for.” A native version of the MacBU’s Internet Explorer 5.1 Preview Release for Mac is installed with Mac OS X. However, the X native version of Office isn’t due until sometime this fall.
Macworld Expo feature presentations are open to conference and workshop attendees only. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
MWNY 2001 will run July 17-20 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. You can register by June 18 to save up to US$150 on the on-site registration prices. For complete pricing and registration info, go to the
show’s registration site.
According to the folks at IDG Expo, the organizers of the Mac trade show, over 400 companies will be exhibiting their products in the Big Apple. There’ll be Mac OS X application demonstrations, the annual Digital Art Contest & Gallery, and, for the first time ever in the Big Apple, MacTech Central and the Special Interest Boulevard.
The conference programs will have six pro tracks, 100-plus “user” sessions, over 13 full-day workshops, and Mac OS X educational sessions. There’ll be MacBeginnings sessions for, well, Mac beginners.
