Of course, despite their stated commitment
to the Macintosh
is a gigantic
step backwards in more ways than one. First of all, it's not a Cocoa application
. It's not even Carbon compliant
. Excuse me?!?!?! MacOS X
PB is out, the server edition has been out for over a year, and MS claims this is the newest thing for Macs? Come on. This means that it has to run in the Classic environment
, or compatibility mode
, in OS X...and boy, it's dog
slow. The interface has been changed with no apparent plan. Entourage is okay, but on the whole, the experience reminds me uncomfortably of the hideous days of Office 4.2.1
for the Macintosh...truly a sorry, sad experience if there ever was one.
Nearly $400 US for this?? I pine for WriteNow...
