Another milestone has been completed by Microsoft after the release of Visual Studio 2010 this month. Today Microsoft has reached the RTM (release-to-manufacturing) milestone for upcoming Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010.
Few days back we blogged that Office 2010 will be launched to business customers on May 12 with Stephen Elop, President of Microsoft’s Business Division.
You can join the launch program online on . The site will showcase product demos, customer and partner testimonials, and interviews with product managers and executives, and you can explore, learn, and get excited about the 2010 releases.
Volume License customers with active Software Assurance (SA) on these products will be one of the first to receive the 2010 set 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.
