An internal email from Chris Capposela (head of IW) to field sales confirms that 2007 will get added to the price list in November. This is excellent news and a strong indicator of our confidence. That said, usual caveats apply about how product performance and quality will ultimately dictate availability.
Our development schedule remains on track to deliver the 2007 Microsoft Office system by the end of 2006, with broad general availability in early 2007. Feedback on quality and performance will determine the exact dates.
