Microsoft obviously thought XML import was of general enough interest that they included it in the Windows version of Excel, so they don't really agree with you. I don't agree with digitalformula that Excel for Mac is "almost useless" without XML import capabilities, but it's a big oversight on Microsoft's part, particularly because most of their enterprise applications speak XML. Also, Mac users tend to be more on the technical side anecdotally; most of the people I know use Windows, but most of the developers I know use Macs , so you'd think the Mac version would be the one to have XML import.
