Microsoft has confirmed that Windows Vista and Office 2007 will be available to all users from 30 January.
Microsoft released both packages to large-volume business users yesterday.
Microsoft has already said that those who bought the Windows XP OS and the Office 2003 productivity suite from this October will be able to get a free or cheaper upgrade to both packages once the new versions become available.
This offer includes users who have bought the software already pre-installed on new PCs.
As well as releasing Windows Vista and Office 2007 for businesses yesterday, Microsoft also released Office Project Professional 2007, Office Visio Professional 2007, Office InfoPath 2007, Office OneNote 2007, and Office Communicator 2007.
Exchange Server 2007 was also released, along with a host of other server upgrades and new products.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said, “We expect that more than 200 million people will be using at least one of these products by the end of 2007.”
