Microsoft's Mac Business Unit Turns 10

Microsoft's Mac Business Unit Turns 10

When you have an important message to convey, say it in Post-Its.


This just in from one of the publicists for Microsoft's Mac Business Unit (aka MacBU) - proof positive that even in the wilds of Redmond, the most creative folks are those who use Macs:


"Yesterday, February 6, 2007, the Mac BU celebrated the 10th anniversary of the formation of the group in 1997. To commemorate the occasion, a few ambitious Mac BU-ers concocted a plan to arrive at the office in the wee hours of the morning to set up giant, pixelated designs in the windows made entirely out of sticky notes! To top it all off, the designs were created in Excel. Check out the photo above.


For more details and photos on the big birthday celebration, check out David Weiss’ blog posting on Mac Mojo."


From Mac|Life to MacBU: Happy birthday, guys and gals! It's been a great 10 years. Now get back to work on that Intel-native version of Microsoft Office for Mac that we're all waiting for...

Congrats on the anniversary. But to be honest, aside from office on a mac, they have bungled alot for the mac.

You windows media player for mac has been discontinued, and it never was so great anyway, but it did function part of the time. (not great or stable though)

They now thing that they can license a decoder to a third party to be a plug in for Quicktime player, but it just doesn't do DRM encoded windows media files. so what good is it????

Let mac users play DRM protected WMP files. Hell, Apple has an entire team dedicated to windows Itunes and quicktime. they don't half ass the other system and many people are upset about microsoft about this
