Microsoft Office 12 is supposed to be released next month, so this is believable.

Also, I heard that the newest Vista right now is very stable.

I am gonna cry false for 3 reasons...

1st, the original source of the article is a page from the UK, and release dates usually vary between US and UK.

2nd, the original article is NO LONGER AVAILBABLE.

3rd, nothing about this at Tom's Hardware Guide

Original Source: http://news.zdnet.co.uk/0,39020330,39284078,00.htm

BTW... this should be moved to Windows Vista Discussion thread.

EDIT:
Sorry, being released in '07: http://www.tgdaily.com/2006/10/13/mi..._korean_vista/

Link doesn't work.

Also I didnt post it in the Vista discussion because it also concerns Microsoft Office 2007 and Exchange 2007.

Proberly will be fake but could be true so might as well post it.

I also live in the UK.

Yes, the HEADLINE is
Quote:
Microsoft adjusts EU, Korean versions of Vista
The first paragraph states:

Quote:
Redmond (WA) - Following recent complaints by companies such as Symantec and McAfee, Microsoft today announced that it will revise the feature set of Windows Vista, which is on track for a global launch in January 2007. The European and Korean editions will see changes in the areas of security, search and the new file format XPS, the company said.

Okay this is a hoax. First off the BUSINESS version of Vista is supposed to be released in Nov/Dec. The Commercial version is still not until Jan.

Office 2007 isnt even slated to be out of Beta till Nov. I am a Official Tester and i got the email from them already on this. It is going to be RTM Next Month. Even then they said they will NOT release Office till Vista is ready so they can release both products at the same time.
