The next version of Office will now officially be called ‘Office 2007’


It’s nice to get the naming ceremony out of the way early – we can stop talking about the code-name ‘Office 12’ safe in the knowledge that the next Office will be called ‘Office 2007’.

Now we can all rest easy .

Mind you, the name ‘Office 12’ won’t be totally forgotten. Office 2003 users may have noticed the code name ‘Office 11’ appear (for example in the /Program Files/Microsoft Office/ Office11 folder ). Most likely “Office 12” will similarly linger on.
