At least this made us understand from the American headquarters, "the newspaper said, one of the reporters responsible for relations with journalists. But even within the press office there are those who still have a different and pessimistic opinion: "We do not have release dates, but we believe – said Tom Carter, another of the service employees who can be presented at the end of the third fourth or beginning of the last quarter of 2000 ".

From what was learned in the context of MacWorld, in fact, IE with Office and AppleWorks, as well as with some Web applications, should be among the first applications to be "charred" and made compatible with MacOs X. But beyond this a delay in the release of Microsoft's browser in fact. Announced first by the end of February, then by mid-March, still not seen.
