The party line is that MS was having programming issues with VBA on the Mac version that they couldn't address in time for shipping. The fact is that the Excel 2008 Mac version wasn't an improvement at all, and with the lack of macro support, wasn't much of anything. I can't imagine why anyone would consider it an upgrade. I also can't imagine why a program as transparently cross-platform as Excel would suddenly become incompatible, especially since were looking at Intel chips. Needless to say there are all kinds of theories going around. The bottom line is that MS considers itself a law unto its own and you never know what they're going to do.
