Vista creeps over the Horizon

OS, Office and Exchange hit corporates today

Microsoft finally launches Vista, Office 2007 and Exchange today. Sort of.

Businesses who have locked themselves in to the vendor’s corporate licensing programs will be able to download the products from today apparently. The rest of you are going have to wait till the New Year.

In fact, some customers have been in touch with El Reg to say they’ve already downloaded the whole shebang, and that the “finished product is so much beta than the beta's”. Which suggests that the spelling/grammar checker might still need a bit of work.

We’ll be at the launch later on today to give you all the details you’ve already heard and hopefully some you haven’t.

In the meantime, if you’re busily downloading any of the new products, email to tell us what you think. ®
