    by far the best analisis that i read in last days about this notice. You hit the target about the reason about ms movement.

    Good analysis, but,

    I’ll believe it, when it actually comes out.

    Yeah, not confirmed but it probably will happen considering the huge marketshare Android has. Who will live, will see.

    I’ll have to add another 32GB to my Android tablet to run MS Office.

    What open source people would be excited if office was brought to Linux? That would be terrible news, it would just allow proprietary office formats to continue to exist even longer. Office just needs to die.

    This would have been really big in 2006. Thanks Google Drive, LibreOffice, Android & Linux Mint(Ubuntu) for the liberation.

    look at the state of MS Office on the mac platform….there would be no point in having an MS office port unless they make that software as good as 2010/2007/2003…etc

    Home users and admins etc… couldn’t care less. But office for linux finally means connectivity to exchange mail server (microsoft’s enterprise ones in place everywhere business). Basically by bringing office (or should I say outlook) to linux, this allows businesses to replace windows workstations for the most part. This was previously an obstacle where linux was desired for stability. I’m using linux right now as my everyday work pc, but i still run windows 7 inside because of certain requirements not met by other mail clients.

    besides… if they don’t come out with it, someone in the linux world will eventually beat them to the punch.
