Yeah, anytime I hear someone blather on about how they need "Office compatibility", I point out that even *OFFICE* doesn't have "Office compatibility". What they *really* mean is, "Everyone on the same version of Office, on the same OS version so nothing gets too badly fucked up. We hope."
An Office-only environment that runs on multiple OS versions (of even Windows) is going to have the same &*(%#$ issues that a Office/not-Office mixed environment is going to have.
They just don't/won't admit it.
yeah, and the bitch of it is, it's not like you can get Office 2007 for the mac -- word 2007 for PC and 2008 for mac is the closest you can get to having the same version on both and being up-to-date...
