Q&A: Office 2001 for Mac Takes Users to a Whole New Level of Simplified Computing

October 16, 2000

Walking what is perhaps one of the finest lines in the high tech industry, Kevin Browne works at Microsoft, where he lives and breathes the Macintosh. Browne, who has worked for Microsoft for 10 years, was named head of Microsofts Macintosh Business Unit (MacBU) in late 1999. Today at the CompUSA store in San Francisco, Microsoft announced the nationwide availability of Office 2001 for Mac. From the packaging — a reusable CD sleeve and a translucent, silvery plastic case instead of cardboard, to the graphics enhancements — the ability to make photographs glow, for example — Office 2001 for Mac, according to Browne, will take users to a whole new level of simplified computing.
