Microsoft will sell an Ultimate Office
The Ultimate edition will include Access, Excel, Groove, InfoPath, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word. The Ultimate edition is basically the same as the old Enterprise edition of Office except that it will be offered to all customers, both corporate and consumer.
Microsoft says it has introduced the new version due to feedback received from customers.In comparison, the Professional edition loses Groove, InfoPath, and OneNote, and the Small Business edition lacks Access on top of those. Office Standard 2007 will continue to have Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word. Finally, Student and Teacher editions of Office will now be called Home and Student, and will include OneNote instead of Outlook.
Pricing starts at US$679 for Ultimate, $499 for Professional, $449 for Small Business, $399 for Standard, and $149 for the Home and Student editions.
