Microsoft has finished coding their next install of the Microsoft Office series. Office 2007 is ready for its "release to manufacturing", and hopes to have it ready for corporate users by November 30th. As Yahoo! News reports, Microsoft also hopes to release Windows Vista and 2007 Exchange on the same day to their business customers, with a full release coming early next year.
