Bob here. Ya knew it was coming.

According to Arthur C. Clarke in his book “2010: The Year We Make Contact,” by now we should have bases on the moon, a ship heading to Jupiter to meet up with another one already there (having killed its crew).

Would you settle for Office 2010?

Didn’t think so. How ’bout we throw in SharePoint 2010, Project 2010 and Visio 2010?

Yeah, I figured that’d get you. Well, they’re all coming (along with, ultimately, SQL Server 2008 R2, of course), starting in May.

Here’s the idea:

  • April…these products hit the “Release to Manufacturing” stage
  • May (around the 12th) – the products are offered to the business world
  • June, Office 2010 hits the consumer world (retail and online)
  • TechNet Plus and MSDN…no specific date yet
