Microsoft plans to release many of its 2010-branded products -- including Office 2010 -- to manufacturers this month.

Other products scheduled to hit the release to manufacturing (RTM) stage in April are SharePoint 2010, Project 2010 and Visio 2010. The RTM release means that manufacturers will be able to create images of Microsoft's software for installation on new PCs and servers.

In addition, Microsoft announced other dates of note for those wanting to buy the new products. On May 12, Microsoft will begin offering its 2010 products to businesses as part of a worldwide launch event. The event will feature a talk by Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop. In June, Microsoft plans to release Office 2010 to consumers, both through online and retail stores.
