In my never-ending quest for Office 14 information, I’ve run across yet another roadmap. From November 2008, this one seems to line up Office 14 as being wrapped up in 2009 since there’s no mention of it in “Future”. Curiously, Windows 7 is showing up as “Future” instead of CY2009, so this is either a slightly dated roadmap or perhaps Microsoft just played it safe in this one by not making any guarantees of a 2009 release. Then again, Azure is mentioned and that was only made public 3 months ago, so I don’t see this as being too terribly dated of a roadmap.
Also of note are the references to Windows Mobile 7 and its beta. Apparently, Microsoft isn’t going to guarantee a 2009 release for it, either. Have a look-see:
