Microsoft Office now shares a common codebase

January 19, 2018

Erik Schwiebert:

Mac Office 2016 version 16 is now live! For the first time in over 20 years, Office is again built out of one codebase for all platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android)!

MSFT is dog fooding big time with this latest release of Mac Office. I’ve been enjoying my work within their frameworks and products that allow cross-platform mobile app development.

@cdevroe I don’t use Office, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out this time; I seem to recall the last time that happened, Mac Office was not well received and Microsoft then swung in the opposite direction with the Mac BU.
