On October 29, 2012 the final "bits" of the new Office were released and have been made available to our Software Assurance (SA) customers. Since that date all on-premise products including Office, SharePoint, Lync, Exchange, Visio and Project have been available to your customers on the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC).
However, the new Office is not only available for your customers but also for you.
The volume licenses of the on-premise products of the new Office will be available on the corresponding price lists as of December 1, 2012. You can start selling the new office from then on.
The new Office SKU Pricing Guide is now available on Explore.ms and as part of the Get Licensing News on MPN. The new User CAL Pricing will also take effect December 1, 2012 (device CAL pricing is unchanged). Learn more about the CAL licensing here.

What is a Microsoft Account?
A Microsoft account is the way you sign in - with an email address and password - to services like Hotmail, Messenger, SkyDrive, Xbox LIVE, or Outlook.com as well as products including Windows 8 PCs, Windows Phone and Xbox. This was formerly known as a Windows Live ID™. If you use one of these services, or use Windows Phone or Windows 8, or have ever made a purchase from Microsoft online, you probably already have a Microsoft account. For more information on this topic, check out this video we put together with the Microsoft store to help customers.
