It looks like Microsoft will be releasing Office 2007 around the same time that it releases Windows Vista. January is the current target date for both launches which has caused quite a stir. When Vista’s launch date changed to after the holiday season many analysts couldn’t believe it. They started to wonder how Microsoft could miss such an important time in retail sales. Now Office 2007 has fallen behind and is singing the same tune as Vista.
To be honest I am quite surprised. Office 2007 Beta 2 is extremely stable for me and is much more usable on an everyday level than Vista is. I thought that this release was a good sign that Microsoft was going to stay on target with their November launch date. They must have, not surprisingly, hit some bumps in the road.
