About This Blog

Hello! Welcome to the official weblog for the Office for Mac team at Microsoft (a.k.a the Macintosh Business Unit, or simply MacBU). Our team is focused exclusively on developing software for the Macintosh platform. Our main product is, of course, Microsoft Office for Mac, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Entourage and Messenger for Mac. We also create the Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac, a free product available on our website.

We decided to create a team blog because we wanted to offer a broad range of voices and perspectives across MacBU. Bloggers on this site include developers, testers, user assistance, product managers, usability engineers, product marketers, and our General Manager. We have bloggers from both our Redmond, WA and Mountain View, CA (Silicon Valley) campuses. Some of us are experienced bloggers whom you may have been reading for years; others are newbies, blogging for the very first time as part of this team.

Want to get to know us better? When someone makes a post, you can click on the author’s name to view his/her profile to get more info about who we are as individuals and as a team.

One thing we all share: We are excited about communicating with the Mac community via our blog in an informative and more informal way. We’ll blog on a variety of topics (some technical, some not) that interest us and we hope will interest you. From time to time, we will also invite guest bloggers to give you another perspective about our software and the people behind it.

Thanks for taking the time to check us out. We hope you find our blog interesting and enjoyable, and that it helps us get to know each other a little better. And if you happen to attend Macworld in San Francisco next year, there’s a good chance you will meet many of us there! J

    It's been a busy couple of days for me, but I've had a chance to catch up on the 68 comments responding to my late Friday post. I'd like to call out a couple of comments that made my evening last night when I wrote this – one was where Nick Caraway grants...
