Microsoft Office 2010 to hit retail stores in June

Microsoft Office 2010 has reached the released to manufacturing (RTM) milestone after an extensive beta testing program, with Microsoft’s productivity suite due to hit retail stores in June.

Microsoft Office 2010A beta version of Microsoft Office 2010 has been available through Microsoft’s public beta testing program since November last year, with user feedback and error reports contributing the the final RTM version. Since the start of the Microsoft Office 2010 public beta last year, more than 7.5 million people download the beta version, more than 3 times the number of people who participated in the Microsoft Office 2007 beta program!

Initially Microsoft’s Volume License customers with active Software Assurance (SA) will receive Microsoft Office 2010 family of products. They will be able to download the products in English via the Volume Licensing Service Center starting April 27. Customers without SA will be able to purchase the new products through Volume Licensing from Microsoft partners starting May 1.

Earlier this year we announced that we will officially launch Office 2010 to our business customers on May 12 with Stephen Elop, President of Microsoft’s Business Division, delivering a keynote as part of our virtual launch.

Microsoft Office 2010 will first become available in retail stores in June in the US, with Australian availability yet to be announced. Customers can pre-order the retail versions of Office 2010 at http://store.microsoft.com/OfficePreorder now to receive Office when it becomes available.
