Microsoft on Thursday said it hasn’t ruled out bringing Office to Apple’s newly released Mac App Store.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Speaking with AllThingsD, Microsoft’s Amanda Lefebvre said the Mac App Store is something they are looking at. She said they haven’t ruled it out as an option, but they would “have to see how that relates to our business.”
It seems there may be more to consider than just whether Microsoft wants to sell Office in the Mac App Store. Apple has some stringent rules for what it will allow in its store.
If Apple were to allow Microsoft into the Mac App Store without passing all of the same tests that other developers must go through, the outcry would most certainly cause some problems.
For now, we sit and wait.
