Office 10 for Mac OS X is still not due until this fall, but at the upcoming Macworld New York, some details will be revealed.
Kevin Browne, general manager of Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit (MacBU) will hold a “Microsoft Office 10 for Mac OS X Users Update” on Thursday, July 19, from 9-10 am. During the feature presentation, Browne will offer “insight into the state of the Mac development world” and how Office 10 will “take Macintosh productivity to the next level,” according to information from IDG World Expo, organizers of the expo.
Last month the MacBU released an Office 2001 Service Release 1 (SR 1) designed to improve the performance of Office 2001 when it’s running in the Classic environment of Mac OS X. You can download the free updater (it’s a 9.4 MB file) at the
MacBU Web site.
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.
