'If you want a happy ending, it depends on where you stop the story.'

You see, not too long ago I was looking over on TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog), and reading Steven Sande's Microsoft working to add Lion features to Office 2011.

Yes, I know MacNN broke the story before TUAW, but TUAW is where I saw it first!

Muthu Nedumaran shared the article with me and commented:

It'll be good if they take the trouble to clean up the Indic bugs while they usher
in the Lion. 


Thinking back to my own review from the beginning of the year (Short-sighted text processing #4: Squeezing every bit of text you possibly can out of MacOffice 2011), in particular the summary grid:

Application AAT
PowerPoint YES NO
Excel YES NO

I'll admit I have hopes that run similar to Muthu's, even though my expectations are more muted - I have absolutely no inside knowledge but I suspect they'll wait for support from OS X itself in many cases.

Though I'd be happy to be proven wrong here. There is definitely room for improvement and I would love to see them slip some stuff in.

Anyone want me on the beta? :-)
