Partners, enjoy the next couple of months as much as you can because things are going to get a little crazy after that. May 12 will be the true first day of 2010 for Microsoft, with the company releasing a raft of products for availability to businesses that day.
Office 2010 will be the star, of course, but the other 2010-branded offerings that will take the stage on May 12 will include SharePoint (arguably a much bigger deal for the channel than Office), Project and Visio.
Microsoft has also decided to offer a free upgrade to Office 2010 for customers who buy Office 2007 between March 5 and Sept. 30. The upgrade plan is part of Microsoft’s “technology guarantee” program, also known as an effort not to cannibalize Office 2007 sales for the next few months.
There’s not a lot more we can say except that this spring and summer are going to (hopefully) be pretty exciting for members of the Microsoft Partner Network.
