We are pleased to announce that a short time ago, we officially released Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010 to manufacturing! RTM (Release to Manufacturing) is the final engineering milestone of our product development cycle, and is a significant achievement for all of us.
We could not have reached this point without the participation of more than 5,000 customers, partners, MVPs and dedicated individuals who have all worked with us on early deployment and testing of the products. The feedback that we’ve received from you has helped deliver a set of products we are very excited about. Important Dates and Product Availability Information!
You can expect to see Office 2010 in retail stores in June, and can pre-order Office 2010 at http://store.microsoft.com/Office
Preorder today to receive Office when it ships in June.
