Say goodbye to Beta 2; say hello to the 2007 release
I know, I know, as bloggers we've really fallen off the wagon. I could bore you with my excuses but I don't want to test your patience any further! This is however the last official post of the Office Pioneers. From today, the 2007 Microsoft Office system is now publically available to companies and...
