Microsoft announced yesterday some new details on Office 12, which will officially be named Office 2007. Most interestingly, pricing will not change significantly, and the Student & Teacher edition is being replaced by a Home and Student edition. There are lots of new features in Office 12, which is probably why Microsoft’s Parri Munsell described it as “the most significant advance in over a decade.”
Munsell said the new Office will offer a bevy of new features, including an all-new user interface and new XML-based file formats.
Microsoft released an initial beta of Office 2007 in November, with a second beta planned for this spring.
You’ve got to pay attention with Microsoft lately, they seem to throw around the cliches and superlatives like there’s no tomorrow!
