Take a Deep Breath: Word 6.0a

Take a Deep Breath: Word 6.0a -- Last Friday, Microsoft announced plans to release a free maintenance update for the Macintosh version of Microsoft Word 6.0. The update will allegedly address key performance problems (such as launch time, spell checking, and type-ahead) and restore some features in Word 5.1 that are either absent or difficult to find in Word 6.0.

The update is to be made available by 30-Mar-95, although no methods of distribution have been specified. When thinking about that date, bear in mind that one of the Microsoft business practices being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice is premature announcement of software products, followed by significant slips.
