There has been a lot of confusion over the announcement that Office 2007 would also reschedule its consumer launch date to January 2007 to match that of Vista.  This marketing launch is a different animal than the development and availability date of the Office 2007 product(s).


Microsoft clarifies this with a press release that reads as follows:
