Microsoft today announced that it would be delaying the release of upcoming Office 2008 for Mac until January 2008. The Office 2008 version was supposed to be released in second half of 2007. General Manager  of Microsoft Macintosh business unit said in an interview “It really is just a quality issue across the board”. The switch to Intel processor and the new Office file formats were the other reasons mentioned for the delay caused. So we should expect Office 2008 to be launched at Macworld Expo 2008 or at least demoed there.
