Will You Be in New York on May 12?

That’s right, May 12 at New York, Microsoft will be releasing Office 2010.  I won’t be able to make it, but maybe you can.  Mary Jo Foley has a very interesting post on what to expect from this event plus more:

Microsoft officials said a few weeks back that May 12 would be a big day for Office 2010. But Microsoft also is planning to hold an actual business launch event for its next-generation productivity suite in New York City on that date to complement its worldwide virtual launch events.

Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop will be keynoting the event, which kicks off at 11 a.m. ET, company officials said.

As she usually does, Foley goes into depth on this topic and describes every aspect that you need to be aware of, it’s a very good read.  If you haven’t yet tried Office 2010 you can still download the beta from Microsoft (I highly recommend you give it a go).  Not only is Office 2010 just the next version of Office, but it expounds upon the great features of Office 2007, offering the Ribbon on basically every Office App available.  It also adds some very useful tools for users such as a new search navigation pane in Word and SparkLines in Excel.  Very cool stuff.

(P.S. She also discusses Windows Summitt 2010, the replacement for WinHEC)
