2007 Office Fully Baked; Windows Vista Almost Done

by Todd Ogasawara

Microsoft sent out email early today (Friday, Oct. 6) that 2007 Microsoft Office (note the new word order) testing is complete and will be released to manufacturing (RTM) in a few weeks. The Beta 2 Technical Refresh clients will expire on the Ides of March 2007. So, we can probably expect the shrinkwrapped release sometime before that date.

Microsoft also released Windows Vista Release Candidate build 5744 today. I just started to download my copy and am told I will have to wait another 12 hours (I have a reasonably fast broadband connection) for it to finish.

So, it looks like the pumps are being primed in Redmond...
