    Office is a reason for business to stay with windows, so until the linux user base is large enough to compensate for loss of windows sales, it will stay windows only.

    The reason they make it for OSX is because OSX is not a threat, it is a propriety OS on propriety hardware, the users are not/were not going to use windows in the first place. Now with bootcamp, Microsoft may reconsider its OSX Office releases since the users now have the option of dual booting windows.
