Office Beta coming in November October 4, 2005

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

Well its confirmed, Microsoft is shipping the Office 12 beta in November. The only problem I see is that it supports only Windows XP and Windows Vista. With over 50% of businesses running Windows 2000 Pro, (The Best OS Microsoft has ever produced), thats a short sighted market. If these people switch to StarOffice or OpenOffice Microsoft will have a real revolt on their hands. Since the competitors have features built in already it will be interesting to see how well the upgrade path markets itself. OpenOffice works on Vista by the way.
