Tired of waiting for Windows Vista? Got an MSDN Premium subscription? Well, there you go.

Microsoft has already posted the final bits for Office 2007 on its MSDN downloads site, and said it plans to post the golden code for Vista on Friday.

The downloads include Office Professional 2007 in English, German and Japanese, as well as individual programs such as Professional releases of Project 2007 and Visio 2007, Groove 2007 and InfoPath in English and Japanese. They also include Office InterConnect 2007 in Japanese and OneNote 2007 in all three languages.

In a posting over the weekend, Microsoft's MSDN Subscriptions blog said that other products and languages will be available from the site soon. "We look forward to adding Windows Vista to our slate of offerings beginning November 17," said the posting by Seth Adams, program manager for MSDN Subscriptions.
