New version of Microsoft Office finally named

Hey, for those of you who are following the new version of Office scheduled for release this next year, Microsoft has just given it the stirring name of "2007 Microsoft Office System." I'm loving the Beta, to be honest, and think people are really going to enjoy this new product when it ships.

Jensen Harris gives some information on how to participate in the Beta 2, if you're interested.
Chris Pratley also gives some good info.
You can find out which products go with which suite here.

Microsoft is also going to bundle OneNote into the Home and Student version, which is pretty exciting. OneNote is an app I could no longer be without.

Sure! The final name for Longhorn is Windows Vista. It is supposed to be released in the fall of 2007. Thanks for dropping by.
