Mac Office 2007 Delayed to Late 2007?
Microsoft will release the next version of Office for the Mac in late 2007. Perhaps Microsoft just leaked the Leopard release date in the process as well:
Microsoft Office 2007 for Mac will feature an all-new look and feel to match Mac OS X's interface evolution, and enhanced features, while running natively on the new Intel Macs.Related: Microsoft's new Mac Mojo blog

Now for the bad news: It won't be available till the latter half of 2007.
there will be an interface overhaul in line with Apple's interface guidelines and the direction being taken by Mac OS X Leopard, also due out next year.
This may draw on elements of the "ribbon", a new strip of commands and formats to debut in the Windows version of Office 2007.
Word, Excel and PowerPoint will adopt XML as their native file format, again like the Windows versions.
One of the biggest selling points of Office 2007 will be that it's a universal binary application that will run natively on both Intel and PowerPC Macs.
