Microsoft has released some shots of Office 2004 for the Mac. As with most Microsoft software designed for the Mac, it looks very impressive. New features include "Project Center"; essentially an email client which spans across all elements of Microsoft Office 2004. The price for the new version will be $399 for standard, and $499 for the professional edition.
"Although Microsoft's Office 2004 won't be on store shelves until the middle of this year, we got a sneak peek at its new features. And these additions -- from a command center for related correspondence, calendars, and files, to an audio recorder that gives your typing fingers a rest -- made quite an impression. Come take a look at the next version of one of the most important program suites for the Mac."
