Microsoft Delivers Mac Converters

Susan Hall

After several delays, Microsoft finally released file format converters that allow Office 2004 for Mac to read the Open XML file formats introduced in Office 2007, reports Computerworld.


The company kept delaying the converters as it focused instead on Office 2008, which makes money, while updating old software doesn't, notes The Register.


The OOXML files are the default in Office 2007 for Windows and Office 2008 for Mac. The converters were released as part of a general update for the two suites.
