Citing "performance issues", Microsoft said last week that it will not release Office 2007 to enterprises until "the end of 2006". The consumer launch will take place some time in "early 2007".More info at VNU Net.
But David Bradshaw, an analyst with Ovum, said: "It seems sensible to keep Office 2007 in step with Vista, and Vista is already delayed, so this is not entirely surprising to us.
"There is wide speculation that Vista will be delayed again, and this would be an embarrassment for Microsoft.
"Vista is a much more ambitious project than Office 2007, and has already seen several delays. Microsoft may face the same decision again: whether to postpone Office 2007 or launch it without Vista."
Windows Vista to be delayed because of Office 2007?
