Microsoft Delays Office 2007


Office 2007 DelayOn the heels of their announcement of the delay of Windows Vista, Microsoft issued a statement today which states that Office 2007 will be delayed as well. Originally expected to hit the market by the end of the year, Microsoft is choosing to delay the launch of the new Office suite until January 2007 to coincide with Windows Vista’s retail debut. Microsoft Office 2007 will still be finished in October 2006, and will be available to business customer who purchase bulk licenses at that time. Malina Johnson, a spokeswoman with Microsoft’s public relations firm Waggener Edstrom, said in an e-mail that the decision to delay the release of the retail version is “simply an indication of our desire to provide an easy retail experience by coordinating delivery with Windows Vista.” Looks like Office 2007 will end up living up (or down) to it’s name.

Yeah, but the beta is SHWEEEET! smooth fast interface, completely remade without bloating the hell out of it. It starts out faster, way faster than office 2003 at half the install size. excellent system resource resolution with any of its programs. It even now allows you to save as .DOCX which compresses the file by 50%.  Not bad, and good job to MS. I rarely say that.
