Microsoft Fresh on the heels of a delay in broad availability of Windows Vista, Microsoft confirmed late Thursday that it is also pushing the mainstream launch of Office 2007 to next year. As with Vista, Microsoft hopes to finish the code for Office 2007 this year. The company said work will be completed by October, when it will make Office 2007 available to business customers that have signed up for Microsoft's volume-licensing program. And, again like Vista, Microsoft plans to ship retail and original equipment manufacturer versions of the product in January. UPDATE: Microsoft has joined a committee that has a key role in the ratification of the OpenDocument format as an international standard.

The MS hiearachy are to big to produce something.
They are trying to be good at so many things.


I think they should release Vista and Office as a service pack for Windows XP(Office 2003) and start on writing a new code from scratch so it's good from the beginning til the end.

And for me it seems logic that they would release this for free cause of those ship dates that seems to move forward the whole time.

Do those changes in the hierachy and move on from square 1.

What confidence do they think they put on their customers? Now they cannot trust; will Vista come in 2010? Or what? Well..
