We informed everyone earlier about the availability of Microsoft Office 2010 on MSDN and TechNet on the 22nd of this month (April). Today is that day! and you can download the RTM version of Office 2010 now from MSDN and TechNet as we speak.
The official public launch of Office 2010 will be held on 12th of May in New York City along with other virtual events around the globe, and Office 2010 will be available in every retail store in the US in June, so you have to hold your horses for a couple of months to get your hands on the retail Office 2010 package.
Office 2010 RC (Release Candidate) was released in February of this year. Office 2010 Beta, along with Office Web Apps was released by Microsoft back in November last year for Connect, TechNet and MSDN subscribers. A broader more general release of Office 2010 Beta was made later at PDC09.
Those of you who are members of MSDN and TechNet, can download the RTM bits of Office 2010 right now and enjoy the full features of Office 2010. Office 2010 is surely by far the best version of Microsoft Office to date, and we’re sure the saga will continue later on with updates and fixes which would improve the user experience even more.
