    mm......well and good but late 2010 might be mighty too late, with Google breathing down on MSFT's pretty, little neck......

    Actually, there are already several perfectly good alternatives to MS Office -- OpenOffice and NeoOffice, to name a couple.

    true but those are pretty harmless as they've been around for quite awhile....Google is a far more serious threat to MSFT and given its popularity, whatever they have in store may yet be a game ender, so to speak.

    and let us not forget that Snow Leopard will have Exchange Support Built-In! :D

    are they announcing it this early to discourage Entourage users from switching to Mail and iCal?

    I hope that when it finally comes out, we can seamlessly import our ost and pst files from Outlook 2007 into the 2010 Mac version. I want to keep all my mails dating back from 2002.
