Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Running for Office? Microsoft has begun rolling out Office 2001 - the latest versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, its flagship business productivity applications for the Macintosh. In this issue, TidBITS Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg reviews Entourage, Office 2001's new email and personal information manager, but we thought we'd ask: Do you plan to buy or upgrade to Microsoft Office 2001, and, if so, why? Are you attracted by new features, fixes, or improvements? Do you have to upgrade because your company or organization is standardized on Microsoft Office? Do you not plan to upgrade at all? Vote today on the TidBITS home page! [GD]
