Microsoft Office for Linux 'inevitable'

Microsoft will release a version of Office to run on Linux within the "next couple of years",
according to the chief executive of the Open Source Development Lab (OSDL). "They did it once
with Apple; they will do it again with Linux," Stuart Cohen said during an interview with vnunet.com
at the LinuxWorld conference in San Francicso.

OSDL aims to advance Linux and open source. The consortium employs Linux founder Linus
Torvalds, and is funded by IT vendors including IBM, HP and Intel. Cohen argued that Microsoft
will be compelled to create a Linux version in a move to pre-empt the further rise of Sun
Microsystems' open source OpenOffice productivity suite.
