Microsoft Office for Linux?

Gizmodo has a preview for Microsoft Office for Mac. Now since it is clear Office is still in development for operating systems other than windows, why not port the software to Linux as well? I dont see myself using it in my Linux box (I use Google Docs and Open Office) but it may help convert some people over to Linux.

    Their point of porting Office to Mac is to capture the Mac fans, by using a product whose format is closed, they will eventually migrate or dual-boot Windows.
    As for Linux, whoever is using Linux, or left Windows for Linux, will never go back to Windows, and to Microsoft, it's a lost battle if they try to regain that segment/minority.
