Microsoft needs the Mac

The Mac is making up more and more of Microsoft's sales.

I just stumbled across a startling statistic from an article in The Register: 20% of Microsoft Office sales this year are apparently for the Mac version, as AppleInsider confirms.

In fact, according to AppleInsider, "Despite having released just two versions of the productivity suite since 2000,...Microsoft has seen sales of Office for Mac rise about 72 percent from 2001 to 2006, compared with an increase of about 18 percent for Windows versions.

Granted, the Mac version is starting from a smaller base, but this is growth that Microsoft can't ignore.
