On Friday we reached an exciting engineering milestone – the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) for Project 2010, Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, and Visio 2010.
RTM is the final engineering milestone of a product release and a major achievement for all of the internal teams who worked so hard to get to this point. We couldn’t have done it alone though – we would have never reached this milestone without the incredible active participation from our customers and partners. A big thanks to everyone who tested the early releases and gave us feedback along the way.
Signup for our virtual launch event in less than a month on May 12th. For information here: Microsoft Project 2010 Resources and Content – April 2010
Eligible Volume Licensing Customers with active Software Assurance (SA), will be able to download the English products via the Volume Licensing Service Center starting April 27. Customers without SA will be able to purchase the new products through Volume Licensing from Microsoft partners starting May 1. You can expect to see Office 2010 in retail stores in June, and can pre-order Office 2010 at http://store.microsoft.com/OfficePreorder today to receive Office when it ships in June.
