Mac Version

P: n/a
I heard from a Mac dealer that Microsoft was working on a Mac version
of Access. Can anyone substantiate this?

The smart money says it ain't gonna happen. Access is too dependendant on
the Windows API.

I've always said that if MS had ported Access to the Mac it would have saved
Apple as a serious business vendor.

That would be interesting... a WindowsXX virtual machine running
inside a Unix space (which is supposedly what's under OS X)? (well,
under the Mac candy shell...)
