Microsoft on Thursday said the next version of Office for Mac will arrive by the 2010 holiday buying season, and it added that the new version will include a version of Outlook.
Outlook for Mac will replace Entourage, the current e-mail and calendar program in the Mac Office suite. Although it will still differ from the Windows version of Outlook, it will add support for more Exchange features, such as public folders and rights management features.
Since I bought iWork, I have never once opened any of the MS products. I find the Apple products to be easier to use, more elegant and they do everything I need to easily replace Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

How well does it translate complicated Word and Excel documents? I'd be interested in not having to upgrade to Office 2008, if iWork was a good substitute.
Another factor is that sometimes I work on other computers and it's easier to just work with one interface on Word and Excel.
I agree with Bunny, Entourage is superior to Mac Mail. I used both (Mac Mail at home, Entourage at work. I switche to Entourage at home.
Why did MS bother
That argument will go away in a few weeks time ... So the timing of this forward looking statement of Microsoft in that context sounds a lot different from any real plan or promise. It's marketing as usual.
