Poorly researched article. For example:
At the time, Mac was the dominant development platform
Hardly.
There’s also no denying that at the time Mac was the leading desktop platform, at least amongst the business customers who would be purchasing Office.
Not even close. It was exactly what Gates said--a platform where failure would have no business impact. The other problem was that Windows 2.11 wasn't very good. (Mac System 5 and 6 weren't all that great either and the hardware was horrible, but they were better than Windows 2.)

(On the other hand, the second I saw Windows 3.0 running [in beta] I knew that was the future and immediately bought Petzold's book. I late read the Microsoft Windows SDK three book set from cover to cover. Those ended up being more important the Petzold.)
