I am very excited to announce the RTM of Microsoft Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Visio 2010, and Project 2010.  This is a great milestone!  Guess what, I am also not the only one who is excited:

“I'm deeply impressed by the many ways Microsoft has improved on the solid foundation of Office 2007.”  - Ed Mendelson, PC Magazine Microsoft Office 2010 Beta

“…Office 2010 rolled into beta and was even better than Office 2007. Seriously, have you used the beta? It rocks out loud. I may spend a lot of time in the cloud, but I also often have to produce publication-ready documents. Besides, have you ever tried to do a mail merge in Google Docs? Of course you haven’t, because you can’t.”  - Chris Dawson, ZDNet Can I be a Windows, Apple, Linux, and Google guy all at once?

"Visual Studio 2010 includes tools for SharePoint development that will make it much more easy for developers to create and deploy SharePoint applications. Now Visual Studio developers can target SharePoint as a platform." - Mike Gualtieri, Forrester  Microsoft to offer second beta for Visual Studio 2010

"It is not just line-of-business apps, CRM or BI that can be built; it is a way to connect to everything.” - Joel Oleson - Quest Software Platform theme emerges with SharePoint 2010

So when is the next important date, the launch of Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 on May 12th, and the start of General Availability this June.  Do you want to attend a launch find, either go to www.technetevents.com or click on a city (sorted by city) header_rev_centerbelow:
