It was announced yesterday that the Office team has completed its development work on the 2007 Microsoft Office system – our most important release of Microsoft Office in more than a decade. 

The release of the 2007 Microsoft Office system is a milestone event for the Microsoft Business Division and Microsoft. It is the most significant release of the Office system since Office 95 in terms of its scope, the level of deep customer research conducted to help our users get better results faster, and the user feedback we received to improve it.  Over 3.5 million beta testers and data from nearly 150 million user sessions helped shape and strengthen this release.  Simply put, the 2007 Microsoft Office system ushers in an enormous opportunity to help information workers be more productive everywhere. It will be available to our volume license business customers later this month and will be broadly available to consumers early next calendar year.  As you know, we will soon release Windows Vista and Exchange Server 2007. In combination with the 2007 Microsoft Office system, these products are nothing short of breakthrough – their combined innovations will amplify the impact of people everywhere. Beginning later this month we’ll be launching them to our business customers through an orchestrated wave of over 250 business availability events. Please visit the business value launch homepage today to learn more.   

There has been tremendous internal adoption of our earlier betas – over 53,000 Microsoft machines are running pre-release versions of Office today.

On December 5th we are seeing the Launch event to our business comunity in the UK of Exchange, Vista and Office 2007 which stands to be an awesome event with some great speakers.
