Microsoft has no plans to fix ‘crap’-looking Office Suite on Apple’s Retina displays

Office for Mac Retina Criticism

Macworld UK reports that many Apple (AAPL) fans are upset with Microsoft (MSFT), both because its Office for Mac suite supposedly looks terrible on Retina-equipped Macbook Pros and because the company has no plans to make it better. Macworld writes that the appearance of Office on Retina displays has drawn some harsh rebukes on Microsoft’s official Office for Mac blog, with users describing the software as “very fuzzy,” “blurry” and even “crap.” A Microsoft representative responded to users’ criticism on the blog by saying that the company has no plans for any Retina-specific fixes at this time and that “the remaining apps will have the same viewing quality as on any non-Retina device.” What’s more, the representative said that he “cannot comment on any future updates regarding supporting Retina on Word, Excel or PowerPoint.”
