good news for vba

next office for mac (maybe office 2012) will get back vba!

too many people learnt vb 6 in last decade with effort by ms. and vba is very similar to vb 6 which makes people stick around for a period of time. and it is much harder to change a programming language than changing gui for windows.

many people (including those south asians focus on cutting cost in my workplace) want to replace ms office with openoffice but they forget the fact. it is quite hard to do so when vba is still cool and easy to learn.

update on may 25: not just me says open source is absolutely good!
