Microsoft's productivity suite goes gold

Microsoft announced today that its Office 2007 productivity suite has gone gold. The announcement further solidifies the company's efforts to make Office 2007, Windows Vista and Exchange Server 2007 available to businesses on November 30 of this year.

Over 3.5 million people participated in Office 2007 Beta 2 and all were beneficial in helping Microsoft iron out show-stopping bugs and issues with the software. "We’ve crossed the development finish line, and the team deserves to celebrate. The 2007 Microsoft Office system RTM completes the most significant improvements to the products in more than a decade. It’s rewarding to be able to send this release off to our customers and help them take the next big leap forward in productivity," said Jeff Raikes, president of the Microsoft Business Division.

According to eWeek, Microsoft will also make available downloadable trial versions of Office 2007 products starting on December 1 in the United States and Canada. Office Professional 2007, Office Small Business 2007, Office Standard 2007 and Office Home and Student 2007 will be offered for trial downloads. "After that, you can participate in the trial program for 60 days before being prompted to convert to full-packaged product through a simple process on Office Online or by visiting a local retailer. The process of activating trial software begins automatically when you first open any Microsoft Office product trial," said Chris Schneider, senior marketing manager for Microsoft's Information Worker Product Management Group.

As a refresher, pricing for Office 2007 is as follows:

  • Microsoft Office Professional 2007 ($499/$329)
  • Microsoft Office Small Business 2007 ($449/$279)
  • Microsoft Office Standard 2007 ($399/$239)
  • Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 ($149/NA)

Retail availability of Office 2007 is expected on January 30, 2007.
