Microsoft Targetting 2010 Release For Office 14

While the tech-world's focus on Microsoft over the past week has largely surrounded their massive Windows 7 beta, the Redmond giant isn't just sitting back and hoping that the new OS saves the company. Their other cash cow, Microsoft Office, is also undergoing some code renovation and according to some slides spotted at CES, is looking at a release next year.According to Mary Jo Foley over at ZDNet, the alpha code has already gone out to a limited number of testers, and there's still a chance we could see the new Office suite on sale this year. But no matter when we see the new version, it's going to be a pretty tough sell for Microsoft considering the relative cost of their offering to Google Apps or even the new iWork suite.
