Microsoft 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 2006. 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 Vista launch. But on June 29, 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". This does not stop MS from pondering about Vista's successor, though.

I like my beers and whiskeys, but this is one toast to which I will choose not to drink.

Here's to rescuing corporate IT from the proprietary lock-in of Microsoft business collaboration software. <klink> <gulp> ahhhh...
