One of the Dutch developers has stumbled across a Microsoft roadmap and announced that it indicated that the next version of Microsoft Office would not ship until the first quarter of the next year.
Maarten Visser, the Chief Executive Officer of Meetroo, has found the roadmap when he clicked on a link published on Microsoft’s Dutch site – it turned out that the PDF file wasn’t password protected. He posted the data he found in a YouTube video – it appeared to be quite interesting for him because his firm was building SharePoint apps and the release date of SharePoint 15 was very important for him.
Actually, there wasn’t much in the roadmap that wasn’t already known: it confirmed that Vole would release a public beta of Office along with betas of supporting products such as SharePoint and Exchange. However, it seems that the suite’s final release won’t see the light of day until the 1st quarter of 2013. That’s what doesn’t tally with what the software giant has been saying earlier. In case you accept the roadmap, the Office beta is marked as smack-dab between the 3rd and 4th quarters.
Meanwhile, Microsoft hasn’t yet officially revealed a timetable for Office, but a few months ago Office group executive promised that everyone would have a chance to try the Office 15 public beta in summer 2012. One more section of the roadmap showed timelines for Windows, Internet Explorer 10, and Windows Phone. As for Windows 8, its schedule only showed last September’s Developer Preview marked, while Windows Server 8 was labeled “Historical Release Cadence” lasting from the middle of the current year through early 2013. Finally, Internet Explorer 10’s launch was marked as somewhere in the second half of 2012.

|@mothra - i doubt it. With microcraps current technology aim, getting further and further from the average user. Trying to make interfaces designed for 2 year olds.... the only people interested in it, are casual users that own netbooks and have no idea what the words "Desktop Computer" means...|
Who care's about the release date anyways? it will be ridden with bugs, and incompatibilities, even with there own software for atleast 9 months after the release anyways...

|@kingtiger with your many paranoid rants you have proven that you don't know what anything is much less a desktop computer, which of course makes you the 2 year old who has no idea. Why don't you go back to your fisting clips and leave, just leave!|
|what microsoft did from the very beginning is like a builder who marketed his half-finished house as a complete finished one, then when the foolish buyer/owner just moved in for about a year, suffering endless leaking and numerous unsafe issues, the builder has launched another new half-built house right next to it with prettier facade and better layout inside, selling it at much more hyped price to another stupid buyer. by law and warranty, the builder has to come back to fix all the problems but never could finish the repairs for both houses he sold, all he can do is to keep coming back to patch all the leaks, cracks, broken windows, fire-resist-retard walls, backyard fence, side yards gates, unsafe staircase, even unsafe structural problems. microsoft sold these unfinished products to billions of users but never could sold any product as a completely finished one. while their older products have forced users to get used to, they just like the house builder, marketing another unfinished product again and again. microsoft is like a car manufacturer who sold many models that need to be recalled again and again to fix major or minor safety problems. did microsoft ever realized that they cannot sell unfinished products to the consumers one after another and tries to fix or repair the never ending defects. there's no basic ethics and morality ever existed in microsoft corporate mind. microsoft sold the windows xp, windows vista, windows 7, and all the other sideline products such as microsoft office, internet explorer....but none of them can be accepted as a finished product and still keep repairing them constantly. while the consumers are sucking into microsoft's ponzi-like half-baked new products, microsoft's chefs are pushing out a newly half-cooked windows 8 dish with office+i.e.explorer desserts, and their quantities are bigger and bigger. without bigger hard drive plates to accommodate them, their newly half-cooked, half-baked food with new recipes and tastes might not be marketable.|
|Housearrested, I see you just learned how to use analogies, enough already! You go from building houses to cars to cooking!! and you don't finish a thought|
In your run on sentence in quotes you say,
"did microsoft ever realized that they cannot sell unfinished products to the consumers one after another and tries to fix or repair the never ending defects."
You say they can't sell unfinished products. Is this because you know of a law preventing Microsoft from doing so? It seems to me that they sold a finished products but need to continue to fix security breaches and compatible issues as they arise. It is impossible to make every product compatible with Windows, as Microsoft does not control the private companies that make their software run on Windows.
Another quoted sentence you say,
"while the consumers are sucking into microsoft's ponzi-like half-baked new products, microsoft's chefs are pushing out a newly half-cooked windows 8 dish with office+i.e.explorer desserts, and their quantities are bigger and bigger."
But, Windows 8 is actually a smaller foot print then Windows 7 and Windows 7 was smaller then Windows Vista. It seem to me that the trend is to make their operating system smaller not larger. All the article I read say Windows 8 was Marketed as a smaller operating system, to run on tablets and smart phones. This Should capture more of the market, Maybe?
IMHO Microsoft puts out a finished product, they fix their products all the time and have good support for the most part it. They also are working on making their operating system a smaller resource then ever before.
So are you mad because they never finished a product, fix their products or that you think the products are getting to large and out of control?
|Housarrested, Another thing I got so far off track, I forgot to ask what did your comments have to do with the article anyway?||
