According to DailyTech.com MS has gone gold with Office 2007. It looks like Microsoft will offer a 60 day trial of Office 2007 at the end of December for users who are looking to try the new office suite. At the end of the trial, you can either purchase it online or at a B&M retail location.
I have been using it throughout its first beta incarnation and up until the latest public release which was the Technical Refresh 2. A lot of people are probably saying what does this new version have over 2003 or even 2000? Well for myself, I really like what they’ve done to Outlook. They’ve really revamped everything. They also included an RSS reader within Outlook. You really have to try everything for yourself in order to really get a feel for what has been done and see if you like it or not.
