Microsoft to Delay Office 2007 With Vista

Amid the bombshell news from earlier this week that Windows Vista would be delayed, Microsoft has pushed back its Office 2007 release.

Microsoft said Office 2007 would be delayed until next year, a move that will coincide with the delay of the highly-anticipated Windows Vista operating system.

The software giant had originally planned to make Office 2007 and Vista available concurrently in the fourth quarter in late 2006.

The announcement is the latest blow to Microsoft’s product schedule that has the tech industry abuzz, starting with the Vista delay news, followed by a shakeup in management of the Windows platforms, and now with the latest delay for Office 2007.

Microsoft said in a statement it now hopes to finish the code for Office 2007 this October and make it available to the business customers through the volume licensing program in October 2006.

The finished Office 2007 will roll it out at the same time Vista hits retail store shelves in January 2007.
