    Any clue when Microsoft might begin selling Office 2007?

    Re: release date (Office 2007)

    I don't think an official release date has been made public. As far as I know, Microsoft is/was planning to distribute Office 2007 to OEM builders in December of this year (2006) so that PCs can be preloaded with Office 2007 for the holiday season, and to provide it to retailers in January, 2007. But it's quite possible it may be delayed - the release of the next version of Windows (Vista) has already been delayed until 2007.

    Thanks, Hans.

    Bummer (I think) - watched their promo video on their web site and, if it works like it says it will - should be the best release ever, dontcha think? Or am I being way too optimistic?

    You can try it out - see 2007 Microsoft Office System Beta 2.

    Cool - am downloading it now - apparently didn't try very hard to find a dowload.

    Have a great day.

    You didn't express an opinion - have you tried it? If so, what do YOU think?

    I haven't tried it (I don't think the beta is available to users outside the USA). From what I've seen on various sites, there are some interesting new features, but the interface will take getting used to.

    The Beta is on the cover disk of the current PC Pro magazine in the UK.
