Office for Mac, MobileMe Calendar go unhinged: Will it matter?

Microsoft will soon be releasing its Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 and the big news is that it won't be able to sync with Apple's MobileMe Calendar.

Microsoft will soon be releasing its Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 and the big news is that it won't be able to sync with Apple's MobileMe Calendar.

As noted by Todd Bishop, Microsoft was tossed a curve ball on the MobileMe Calendar changes. The company thought Office for Mac would sync with MobileMe.

Microsoft explains in a blog post:

If you sync your iPhone or iPad calendars with Sync Services (ie via iTunes over a cable), your mobile device calendars WILL be synced with Outlook 2011 SP1. If you sync your iPhone or iPad calendars with MobileMe, they will NOT be synced to your Outlook 2011 SP1 calendar, because of the broken link between MobileMe and Sync Services. Hopefully Apple’s changes will not impact very many of you.

For me, the key line in there is that last one: How many folks will really be impacted? Outlook for Mac and Apple's Sync Services will work. MobileMe won't sync. How will this impact your workflow if at all?
