OK, for those of you keeping score, here’s the latest official scoop on Office 2010. (Oh, and yes, ‘Office 14′ is now officially called ‘Office 2010′ according to Steve Ballmer – who should probably know.) It will now ship in the early part of next year (hence the name).
That should not come as a big surprise to anyone who’s been following this, but I guess I’m still a little impatient. I had a feeling the release date would be moved into sometime next year, but I still hoped to see a beta release sometime this month. Thing is, I haven’t heard a word. Not even an unsubstantiated rumor. The silence is deafening.
Anyone out there heard anything I may not know about? Any of you folks with inside knowledge of what’s going on want to shoot me an anonymous update? I’m dying to see what they’ve done with the SharePoint Records Management functionality, but I won’t even have a clue until the beta is released.
