Office 2010 Nearly Here

I've spent so much time talking to people about Office 2010 I feel like I'm using it already (Office 2010 is on the cover of the March issue of Redmond). And soon I may be. That's because the software is now a release candidate (RC), or what used to be called a late beta back when test software nomenclature was simpler.

An RC is feature complete, but may need bug fixes and tuning. And that can take a while and sometimes several RC iterations. I predict a summer release.

So how much will it all cost? From $100 to $500 retail.
