Microsoft Delays Office 2007 Slightly
Microsoft on Thursday acknowledged that it was pushing back Office 2007 from its scheduled October release to manufacturing. The company also backed away from promising a public launch in January, simply saying Office 2007 would arrive in "early 2007."
"Based on internal testing and beta 2 feedback around product performance, we are revising our development schedule to deliver the 2007 Microsoft Office system by the end of year 2006, with broad general availability in early 2007," a Microsoft spokesperson told BetaNews. "Feedback on quality and performance will ultimately determine the exact dates."
