Rare time?

Rare? I thought Microsoft Office on Macs is traditionally released a year or more ahead of Office for Windows. However, the two versions have been confusingly dirfferent. Is there any chance that the Mac and Windows GUIs will look similar this time?

Sigh, I don't know why I'm bothering about this. Really I'm still waiting for a a fully debugged Word 5.1 for Mac OS X (frankly, 4.2 would be more than enough). Why do I need more bloat?
