Nach einem langen Betatest mit über 600.000 Testern ist es nun endlich vollbracht: Office System 2003 ist fertig! OEM-Partner von Microsoft werden das neue Produkt ab September erhalten, der Privatanwender wird es im Oktober in den Regalen der Händler finden.
Die Betatester erhielten heute folgende E-Mail:
Dear valued Microsoft customer and industry partner,
The release to manufacturing of the Microsoft® Office System this August marks the conclusion of an incredibly successful beta test in the Microsoft product family, one that we could not have completed without your help. Please accept my sincere thanks to you for your participation and feedback during the beta testing phases. In building the new versions of the Office programs, the suites, servers such as Microsoft Office SharePointT Portal Server 2003, Microsoft Office Project Server 2003, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, and new products such as Microsoft Office OneNoteT 2003, Microsoft Office InfoPathT 2003 and Microsoft Office Live Communications Server, we have incorporated valuable suggestions from more than 600,000 beta testers.
We believe that working with such a large and diverse group in a disciplined, systematic beta program is the best way to deliver the tools you have been asking for. We are very excited and proud to be able to deliver a set of powerful, stable, integrated, feature-rich programs, servers and services that we believe will deliver real business value and help you and your business succeed in reaching your goals. The team building the Microsoft Office System is committed to helping you improve process management and boost personal, team and organizational productivity.
We believe productivity can be boosted by integrated innovation that allows people using familiar Microsoft Office desktop applications to connect to more of the business data in their back-end systems. The Microsoft Office System products will begin to be available to volume license customers in September and will be widely available to retail customers in late October 2003. OUR PROMISE In this Digital Decade, we at Microsoft are dedicated to creating and delivering new value by helping you and your organization maximize your potential to succeed. More than 400 million people in 175 nations and 70 languages use Microsoft Office programs.
We are committed to continuing the investment and hard work that will allow us to continue to provide you with a set of coordinated tools that bring you, and customers like you around the world, real productivity benefits. The world we live in is one where we are linked electronically, and we have a great opportunity to be connected with each other, to collaborate, and to communicate using Microsoft Office System.
We look forward to continuing to be your industry partner.
