Microsoft has been promising an Office for the Mac 2014 for quite some time now. Recently, in an article at MacRumours titled “New Version of Outlook for Mac Leaked in Screenshots, Release Date Still Unclear” screenshots have been shown depicting this new product. It was Oct 2010 that the current Mac version was release, now over four years ago.
A New, Fresh Product that Works Properly is Sorely Needed
Due to it’s long incubation period, Office for the Mac has become tired plus there are just aspects of the product that don’t work properly.
Microsoft is not confirming anything however, if Nadella wants his new integration strategy to go somewhere it is essential that Microsoft updates Office and most specifically Outlook. It’s hard to believe that this would be too challenging for Microsoft.
