Win - MS: MS slowing OS X office to boost sales of VPC + Office on OS X?
Software When Apple released the PowerMac G5 many people feared that when Microsoft eventually made Virtual PC compatible with the new chip that they would purposefully make Windows and Windows applications run slower that they did previously. When VPC for the G5 was finally released, people's concerns were finally laid to rest as the speed was acceptable.

Now however, there is reason to believe that Microsoft may have taken the opposite route. Rather than make VPC's emulated Windows and applications slower, it would seem that they made the native release of office on OS X slower. So slow in fact that the emulated version of Excel runs faster than OS X's native version.
