Okay. The rumor's been out and about before. It goes something like this: Microsoft has a super-secret skunk works project building a version of Office for Linux. A good source, a former Microsoft person who is still tight with the company, insists anew that there is, in fact, such a project.

However, with Rawhide being complete, all that is left is last minute testing and then spinning the ISOs and sending them off to the mirrors.
