Microsoft today revealed plans to release a version of Office for Apple's MacOS X in the autumn.

The software giant previewed a future version of Office designed to run on Apple's next-generation operating system at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco.

For a limited time punters buying the current Office 2001 for Mac will be able to get 50 per cent off the upgrade price to Office for MacOS X.

The announcement was one of many from Microsoft regarding products designed for Macs, including the beta release of Outlook 2001.

"Since its October availability, more than 250,000 Macintosh customers have acquired Office 2001 for Mac, surpassing out expectations," said Microsoft general manager of the Macintosh Business Unit Kevin Browne.

The company also introduced Mac drivers for its optical mouse, trackball and keyboard products. ®
