Microsoft Office 2007 Falls Behind Schedule
Office 2007 is running late :(.
Microsoft officials acknowledged on June 29 that the company will not meet the October 2006 business-availability target to which it committed in March of this year. At that time, Microsoft officials said to expect retail availability of Office 2007 to be some time in January 2007, so as to coincide with the Windows Vista launch.
But on Thursday, Microsoft revised its schedule. Now Microsoft is promising that Office 2007 will be available to volume licensees “by the end of year 2006,” with retail availability in “early 2007.”
On June 29, a Vista spokeswoman reiterated: “The (Office 2007) announcement today does not impact Windows Vista timing.”
